I say Amen, to that!:Da perfect ending?
There is courage and sadness in keeping one's chin up. Lovely poem.
love the end--the switch
I think you've captured well the mentality of the developers who, even now, are rebuilding on the Mississippia and Luisiana coast, hurricanes be damned.
Very witty but sad as well.
powerful poem, made even more so with the last two lines.
Love this version of riding it out. Wish it had been like that when I was little - we weren't so courageous, but I think it was because my poor mother was freaked out.
Stoicism is - well, stoic :-)
This is exquisite.Loved the marvellous interplay of helplessness and courage.
Reminds me of the day I went through Katrina. Great poem as always!
Great attitude; facing up to your fears doesn't mean ignoring them.
Hope you've got an ace up your sleeve, or maybe you're just playing the joker!
It's wonderful how the 3-sentence form mirrors the speaker's resolve. Each sentence could stand alone as a poem in itself. And the ambivalence, is it admirable to resolve to recognize the beautiful? Is it contemptible to go on playing cards and do nothing? Both? I like this a lot.
Gorgeous! Very nice last stanza.
Good hands only come once in a while. I played it for all its worth. Thanks.
