STORM

By Chris and Teresa Jarmick

Pine tar, sea salt air

Rocks cackling at pier told fish tales

Droplet of rain as seagulls fly inland

Sunlight trickling over forest of restless waves

Breeze blows pregnant clouds onto shore

Sips coffee, swallows, buttons up jacket

Ocean hisses, buzz is ‘bad one’s comin’”

Hands shake goodbye, boardwalk, sidewalks empty

Black sky, lightning, thunder, downpour

Truck starts, rushing  stream of  water; then stillness
