Today's poem is by dawn lonsinger
In the eye of the storm we came
up out of basements and found sea birds in our yards
gulls and terns stockpiling debris, and frigate birds gliding
flawless over the interstate. A white ibis crawled out of
the gutter and loosed its looped limbs into the air.
Petrels and doves swarmed wet parking lots.
What glistened overwhelmed us, swallows rising
like a sheet over the injured.
