Writer Highlight Featuring: April Lynne


Wandering in the Wake

The rains came
Washed away my yesterday
Tragedy in torrents
Tore through my paradise
Took my loved ones in her wake
That un-named rage

To my breast clung my babe
Feeding, she had no fear
My arms held her tighter
As I planted my feet deep
As a tree rooted

Together, she and I against the storm;
The over powering need to save her
Saved me…the sea has claimed the others…
This day, natures wrath unleashed
I found my purpose in the chaos
Hold her safe in my arms

The devastation surrounds us
The wasters washed away parts of me
Scattered them to wind, wave and sea:

Sometimes survival hurts as much as death.
