“Sentry of Emerald Isle, NC” by Kimberly Maske-Mertz

A radio blares over crashing waves,

The National Weather Service has issued

a winter weather advisory.

Three to five inches of snow expected.

I stretch my fronds toward the sun,

carefree as I keep watch over my tropical paradise.

This too shall pass.
