Sunset After Sandy


United States
40° 49' 37.2756" N, 73° 57' 2.4372" W

There is a fire in the sky!
A beautiful arrangement of clouds burning alive!
Celestial inferno! You have come to call for me
With a blaze of Inti’s fire!

The sun sheds his ire
For the rains the clouds perspired
In a battle with the wind.
Rains that surged in streets turned rivers
Washing man out to the sea.

And to hide their faults from Inti,
The clouds hovered over earth,
Blocking all sight of his rays.

Climb a rooftop! You must see it!
Enraged, the sun inflames the skies!
