Watching the October storm -- a 7 line stanza challenge poem
Here from the safety of my porch
I watch the wind as it blows
Bending palms give their alms
Blowing rain swirls. Glows,
Silhouetted distant light
I watch, standing straight

YouTube Video is from my back balcony (former home) in 2008 during Hurricane Ike. Ike did not damage to our home although it did break branches and pushed down several trees.
The Photo is of our present home's back yard after our recent Texas storm from remnants of Mexico's Pacific Hurricane Patricia combined with a low pressure tropical storm which came in from the Gulf of Mexico. Over the weekend we had over seven (7) inches of rain but no wind or water damage.

Today I am linked with Margaret at the Toad's Imaginary Garden, Play It Again, Toads! , where Margaret asked us to write for a vintage challenge. Mine is from Kerry O'Connor's 2012 challenge, "Paul Laurence Dunbar - 7 line stanza poem".
She requested that we write a seven line stanza poem with the following recommended, but not required form of 8, 7, 3, 6 (with internal rhyme), 5, 7, and 5 syllables respectively for each line. I met that requirement in my above poem.
