In the Midst of Battle

Sea breezes tracking 
Like coastal scouts

Angry radar lines
Brawling where they meet
At the front

Raging war of hot air
Throwing spears
Cannon fire
In a volley of ire

Run for cover
Pour the wine
Draw the blind

Rainy season
Arrives

  1. There’s a riot going on! Great take on the epic battle between east and west. Only someone who lives on a peninsula will understand the dynamics that make for this show. Wonderful poem, Jilly! Pour one for me; I’m ducking for cover!

  2. We are just coming out of a rainy season. I’m glad the sun is here. Describing this as a battle was so very original. I truly liked this.

  3. Not sure If I’d like to be around these battles in the skies…very interesting. We will get our share of crazy thunderstorms though. I admire your word choices like “coastal scouts” and “volley of ire”…
