Nor’easter (Tanka)

Rains pound wooden roofs
Gale force winds destroying trees
Storms batter the coasts
Streets flood, delay my commute,
I’m at the weather’s mercy

Umbrellas take flight –
Escape during the windstorm
My clothes are soaked through
Mere mortals this fight unmatched
Nor’easter is upon us
