Wow this is as powerful as the storm was. The details and emotions you created in me were outstanding. I hope you are writing this from seeing the storm on TV but I have a feeling it's more through personal experience and if that's the case know I have prayed and will continue to do so. God bless.
There's power in brevity, and you have shown this so clearly.
This is powerful and has a great message. I enjoyed it. Thanks.
Excellent, and very powerful. An amazing poem. Many congratulations.
CONGRATULATIONS on your E.C. win!! Wonderful writing here--so highly descriptive, such as:
"Unused jars of scented candles
Now lit
Cloaked the darkness with vanilla and jasmine."

Your word choices perfectly portrayed the storm in all its destructive passion. I also loved the beautiful ending and how it tied with the beginning. WAY TO WRITE!! :)
ooohh this was a brilliant way to put 'the storm' and our storms in perspective. Well done!
I appreciated the "timeliness" (to Sandy) at the beginning of your poem. And then your final message in the last stanza is powerful! Wow! Congrats on your Editor's Choice award.
