Sandy

Woman shrouded in blue

Waits upon the shore

Waves swelling before her

Her dreams swim in the depths

Salt water the key

The end

Final

Her life scrambled

Like yellow eggs upon a plate

Bright fall morning

Event tumultuous

Order flees

Nothing ever the same

Wrath takes over

No longer upbeat

It is her rotten charm

That has enabled her this far

Future uncertain

Note:  Sandy a storm that will long be remembered.  Effects of climate change comes to New York City, and surrounding east coast area.

After a while…
The ringing stops
Silence takes over
She walks the halls
Crowded with memory
Hard to distinguish
Past from present
Mind as empty as
Her dance card

Unaware of what is happening
She paws through her cabinet
Of broken dreams
Seeks shelter in familiar places
Unknown to her
No longer able to handle
The requirements of daily life

Her step no longer sturdy
The cafe where she worked
Forgotten
She grasps the handle of her walker
Stumbles on peanuts
That are not there
Jimmy Carter waters the fern

How to keep score
How to find the guide
What is recommended
A difficult job
By any standard
The face of the old
Turns inward
End of life a mystery
