Big Impacts with Few Words.


Sitting here waiting

For darkness to blanket my world

To hear the chorus of the winds.

 

The blue has turned gray

As the water begins to seep

Into my home

 

Glass shattered

Lives ruined by her evil moods

Mother Nature,why?

 

Just a few haikus about the storm.. I’m trying different things when it comes to poetry, hope you guys are cool with that.

After the Storm.


I never wanted it to end like this

Watching the snow blanket the cold concrete,

Suffocating the world around me.

I try to analyze each word I said

Figuring out where I went wrong

Where we went wrong.

The crisp crunchy leaves crack under my feet

As I walk away from what was comfortable

What was safe.

Now weeks have gone by

And my heart holds onto to something

That never existed.

Imagery, wandering thoughts

Collaborated into an idea

Of what you were.

Of what I wish you were.

Of what you’ll never become.

As the bright sun escapes from the dark clouds

I feel the warmth wash over me like holy water

And feel free.

just a little poem. only thing you can do when you have no electricity, for 7 days.

Hitting too Close to Home.


After my survival of Hurricane Sandy, I’ve become very humbled by the amount of people helping out and coming together to make a difference. As all of you know, sandy slammed the Jersey shore  with high winds and rain taking many homes and vacation spots along with it . The water came up to the block before mine and I’m thanking god everyday it did not continue beyond that point. With this storm, it has destroyed places that I’ve grown up at. That I visited,were I had many memories at. After seeing some of the pictures of Seaside Park and Keansburge it breaks my heart to know that it will never be the same.

A few days after Sandy hit, my job opened back up for service. I work in a retail store so many people were filing  in buying donations and essientals for their homes. Since at that time many counties in the state were without power, the essentials included flashlights,candles and batteries. But as our computer system began to fail on us, my manager decided to make everything fifty percent off. My store manager is pretty awesome to begin with, but after that, there were many happy customers praising him on his generosity.But as the news spread like fire, more people came in buying things that had nothing to do with the storm or donations. They were buying Christmas gifts and really expensive items. As I kept my mouth shut and my head down, this customers came up to my counter and handed me a few shirts to scan. She asked me about the sale, assuming she was Christmas shopping, I told I couldn’t give her an extra 15% off if I didn’t see the coupon. I looked up and saw her makeup was smeared acrossed her face like she had been crying. I told her to not worry about it and I gave it to her anyway. She told me that lost everything in the storm and the clothes she was wearing was the only a few things she had left. She told me what street she lived on which was only five minuets from my house, which was also one of my old friends street.

Today on my way to school, I thought I’d take a ride and see what her street looked like. As I crawled down the street everyone’s belongings was spewed out onto the lawns. It brought me to tears because I’ve walked down that street years ago, I’ve been in those houses and now they are destroyed.

I really am flabbergasted by what has happened in New Jersey. I just got my power back on last night and I’ve been so busy that I haven’t even been able to write on here. Now since I have a little time, I will be back on more. We are now expecting a new storm tomorrow. It doesn’t have a name, but it still looks dangerous and we may lose power again, and if we do, then goodbye for now.

heres some pictures of what sandy has done to my state :

If you can, please donate to the red cross,  you can go to there website. Many people tonight are still without power and we are expecting snow storm tomorrow so please pray for us in New Jersey!

We are Jersey Strong, we will rebuild.

So as Sandy approaches our home, I am bracing myself with my wine glass and my charged computer. It’s funny how the news can scare the shit out of you to the point of where people will leave their home and pets behind. I am sticking this storm at home unlike what we did with Irene. I think this storm is much more scarier then Hurricane Irene but I am surprisingly much more calm than the last one. I heard we will be without power for about a week, I really hope that doesn’t happened.

Here is some picture of what I’m seeing on facebook/from the surrounding areas:

^ The Pier right down the street from my house, pier is gone… let the flooding begin!

Keyport.

For everyone else living in the Jersey Shore Area, and all my family and friends, please be careful.

Happiness in a Cloudy Day.


So today my friend Andrew and I hung out in Colts Neck. Colts Neck is one of the prettiest towns I have ever been to  but there is like NOTHING to do there besides look at peoples houses and go on swings. Anyway, as we were waiting for another wave of storm to come and drench us ( 3rd time being wet today) there were funnels in the clouds. It was cool because it was circling around us until it started thundering. I felt like I was in the middle of a tornado, but not as windy.Thundering is my favorite, even though my dogs think its like the earth ending. As the water drenched my clothes I was full of happiness. I am amazed how weather, even the angriest weather, can make two people extremly happy. The weather has been becoming very bipolar lately, I’m kinda enjoying its inconsistency.

Enjoy the Breeze tonight <3

Home is Where the Rainbows End.


Today as I was driving home, I saw  a rainbow. In New Jersey, you hardly see rainbows so this rainbow sighting was pretty cool. For some reason, when I see rainbows, I always go back to my childhood. When I was really little, my mom used to yell from outside the house whenever a rainbow would show up. I would run out and together her and I would look up and watch the rainbow until it faded. We both thought they were beautiful. I remember I used to wonder why I could only see a few colors and not the whole rainbow. The rainbows I saw growing up used to fade quickly, but today I drove through the rainbow, I thought that was really cool. It looked like an arch over my town. I felt like I was finally home, because once I got to my town, the rainbow had faded. I still managed to take few pictures while driving because I couldn’t waste that incredible,pure,childlike moment. 

Have a Good Night.

Seeing Beyond the Fog.


Yesterday while at school, I took this picture. I am taking an Oceanography class on Sandy Hooke this summer. It is really boring but yet interesting at the same time. I love being surrounded by water. I get so inspired by the beach, maybe its because I’ve lived by in my whole life, I don’t know, but it brings back ALOT of memories. 

This is the bay side of Sandy Hooke. It was foggy and mysterious. That kind of weather is my favorite. It’s puzzling and mysterious and unpredicatable. I love that. 

I wish I was mysterious… I am pretty obvious. Whatever. 

Night.
