A tanka to Texas: Linear 5-7-5 haiku plus 7-7.
Life upended. Our prayers to all who suffered.
(My apologies - this poem generated from this catastrophic
life changing event. If there is any silver lining, last line says it all-
responders happy assisting, "respondees" enormously appreciative.)

Hurricanes sure look beautiful from far up above, alright, just like cotton candy. It sure is quite a bit different when we are caught in the middle of it.

Agree. Hurricanes are masters in mimicking cotton candies complete with a straw (eye) in the middle. Fluffy and all but nothing is sweet in them. Thanks Robert.
