The wind was gentler today.
5-hour electrical outage yesterday
fallen trees over roads, houses, cars
delayed traffic, hurried
meals in the austerity of candlelight.
Calamities coming in stages
but nature can be at its best
whispering to kite runners,
silent when hot air ballooners fly,
rapturous when surfers climb mountains.
Beauty comes like the night
two lovers meeting at twilight
vowing to love each other forever.
Tonight will be freezing
love is kind.
