It is easy to feel adrift when the world is so full of uncertainty.
Hold on to the treasured moments, the significant people, the precious memories and the valued places that have provided you with shelter through life’s storm. Let them be your anchor.

Heading for our shore
Storm force winds
Surge alerts for Coastal towns
Fear ferocious winds.

This is for Real toads- Shadorma. Shadorma is a popular Spanish form of poetry using a 353375 format.
Ophelia is headed our way and will arrive 30 years to the day of the violent storm we experienced in 1987.
Across the raging Ocean
Hurtling home from France in a skittish Dufour
Bobbing in the ocean like a pea in a drum.
Drum lost her keel in Fastnet fright
We were stranded at sea off Selsey Bill
Limped into Shoreham late evening

A memorable sailing trip with my parents in August 1985, as a teenager, still not sure how we survived, the auto-pilot couldn’t hold our course it was a little bit rough to say the least. Dad’s little Dufour was 26ft….Simon Le Bon’s Drum was more like 78ft….
For Quadrille at d’Verse. Challenge STORM.
