a Photographic Journey by Meryl

Forward

surprised
to find you
here in tact
rivers add
don’t subtract

surprised
it’s not
your final act
moving on
forward track

I prepared this post with obvious reference
to the hurricane that miraculously caused no major
damage to my beloved beach. On Sunday when access
was permitted for the first time since the storm, I was expecting
the shore to be largely eroded. Therefore, it was
a surprise to find it mainly in tact.

On this day after the election, it seems that
this post also applies to last night’s Obama win. I had been
bracing for an upset, loss of hope and change so desperately needed
here in America. Again I was pleasantly surprised!

    I wasn’t too sure about the election outcome either, but as you say, I was pleasantly surprised.

  3. Some storms have no impact on some places. What a remarkable post on the indomitable strength, resilience and also the grace of taking on a storm. What a beautiful message of hope first thing this morning my lovely Meryl. Hugs, Sharon
