RHYMES AND REASONS
Picture Dorian Gray
Paying respect to the twisting winds of summer

What rainbow hues are hurricanes?
I picture Dorian gray.
Colorless with shades of fear
as night morphs into day.

Bahamians have stood the test
while standing on their knees.
Their praying posture served them well
amid the surging seas.

And now the Carolinas brace
for winds and pounding rain
while hoping Dorian will die
or pass by them more tame.

The colors of a hurricane
are on nobody's mind.
But rather we are gripped with how
it pummels, floods and grinds.
