Hurricane Irma September 2017
She formed from the warm waters of the Atlantic
In people, she created such a panic.
She teased and tempted while on her way
That some people became blasé.
When her mighty winds did strike
She still carved her path as she liked
When she had passed and left destruction
We slowly emerged from our safe structures
Irma put us back to a time of our ancestors
With no electric, no TV, no internet, no modern pleasures
Have we become so dependent on technology
That we don’t know how to live without it logically?

We were very blessed and lucky that our family survived without any damage to life or property. So many others have lost everything.
