I know how West Virginians felt after Sandy,

Before starting out I felt randy…

Nervous of this time,

An ice-and snow climb,

When rain froze, would be a real dandy!

Starting out it was almost pretty,

Main Street was wet and gritty…

One Forty-Six North

We all sallied forth,

It really slowed down near the city!

Bumper-to-bumper, three lanes,

The weaving ones trying to make gains…

The only one moving

Was the “fast” lane, behooving

My moving into that lane.

Overall it took two hours, plus,

Normally forty minutes, no fuss…

With most of the time

Within city lines,

Going home will see a frozen crust!

About Jonathan Caswell

Poet, author, servant of God the Heavenly father and the Lord Jesus Christ...working out his salvation with fear and trembling. - Not trusting in his own deeds, but depending totally upon the finished sacrificial work of Jesus Christ to be, by God's reckoning, a new creature, clothed in Christ's righteousness...which mortal humankind can never attain by their own weak efforts, apart from faith in Christ's work on our behalf. - College-educated, yet wise enough to see that what a man does will not be his ultimate identity nor affect how God sees him or her. - Called by God to do a very difficult thing...apart from God's grace, mercy and love the sinner (which we all--by nature--are) but hate the sin, which is only paid through Christ, God's Son, - My own God-given gift is that of being a Poet..showing that in all parts of life...God has a loving part in hard as that is to always understand or perceive...given life's realities! Come join me on my journey of discovery?.
