Poetic Reflection on Storm Devastation

Reflecting on the recent devastation in Florida and Texas, I was touched by Collage/Clothing Artist, Tashi Fay. These poetic pieces spoke to me in a very unique way.

I Wanna’ Go Home

A sadden show has come to bare

upon the shores of life’s despair

it’s here on this fertile ground divine

where laughter has seized in record time

broken windows… broken doors…

broken hearts… came to flood the shores

as the storm set down a bold retort

form and fury was set to thwart

we won’t take this burden sitting down

we’ll banned about from town to town

I’ll call to the four winds that blow

in all directions that spirits flow

to the ancient goddesses we pray in kind

that what was lost ~ our hearts will find

memories are made from the touch of a hand

from feeling the dirt that comes from the land

these winds they may roar another day…

but, they’ll never take my memories away

poetic prose – tanyajo
