Death Watch

For Joyce:

Leaden clouds shroud sun

humidity smothers breath

waiting storms rale

thunder moans

while light flashes on horizon

before darkness comes

Mighty Oaks

About family, immigrants, Galveston, Hurricane Ike and destruction:


Mighty oaks greeted

Zayde’s Galveston landing

All survived violent furies

’til Ike’s blitzkrieg released acrid death

& oaks fell
