Hurricane Sandy 10-29-12

20121030-003453.jpg
1. Storm surges without/
A metaphor of disquiet/
Of repressed desires/
#haiku

2. Wind-gusts from the East/
Buffeting our big building/
Pelting us with rain/
#haiku

2b. Wind-gusts from the East/
Pushing in summer’s heavy/
Air-Conditioners/
#haiku

2c. Frightening power/
Pushes air-conditioners/
Back into our house/
#haiku

3. Though quite frightening/
In our Apartment Tower/
We just baked cookies/
#haiku

4. The widespread damage/
Mostly buffeted our trees/
In leafy Woodside/
#haiku

5. “Socialist” housing/
With our own generator/
Never lost power/

6. We who have survived/
Owe the commonweal for help:/
Great infrastructure/
#haiku

7. Individuals,/
Rugged and otherwise, died/
Together, we lived/
#haiku

8. After the tempest/
Community stands taller/
Because we survived/
#haiku

9. I’m glad you’re alive/
With you survives creation/
G_d is in us all/
#haiku

10. Creation & G_d/
Exist only in humans/
And won’t outlast us/
#haiku
