errare humanum est

 

 

~

 

the wind blows slantwise

catching me off guard

i never see it coming, this storm

last i checked all was well

 

it isn't, something is off-kilter

the chill in the air is unseasonal

i'm wondering, is it el niño

is it climate change, is it me

 

no need to consult terri, it's me

it's me being me once again

the wind is blowing hard

and it does catch me unawares

 

but i can't blame the wind

for the storm they call lynn

I was always amazed at how they gave typhoons and cyclones ladies names. They have stopped that sexist behaviour now though. Except for cyclone Lynn that is.

"it's me being me once again" We all know how disconcerting that can be.
