Exceptional
This work has reached the exceptional level
The words are really great to read
in everyway Nature shows us all
which way she wants to go
When w e think about it
Nature is magical in everyway
a gift for us all.

Good descriptive wording. Amazing the force Mother Nature has to take, then to give it all back. Like giving us a new slate to work with as we clean up our previous mess. good work Tabatha

    Thank you so much Lu:)

    I did call you Tabatha, again, sorry about that, Like I don't know your name by now or what? It's the TAB in your pen name that sets my mind to type Tabatha.

    lol - no problem, I've been called worse. Just think of me as saintly - Mother Teresa - ha! That is what my kids' friends used to call me:)

    lol I used to get called just "Mom" Make you old or what?

I hope you had some fun there, though. Are the Virgin Islands on the East or West coast -- probably east.
I hope you have great luck in the contest.
:D

    They are southeast of Florida, near Puerto Rico. Yes, we had a great time. Thanks for the review:)

An excellent photo that complements your poem perfectly. It is about nature, I think it originates from this. You describe exactly what happens when hurricanes hit the coast. You must have had a nice but windy holiday. Best wishes for the contest.

Wow this deserves more than I have left to give. Very well done in the descriptive part.

hurricane-force winds,
and storm-surge waves ripped and snatched
paradise away

There is some very clever double entendre at work here in your impactful tanka poem, Teresa.
This should most certainly be a top contender in the contest.
Best of luck to you,
~Dean

Very nice work with this Tanka entry. We had the same problem here when we experienced a hurricane a few years ago. The beaches were washed away and are finally coming back. I wish you all the best in this contest.

The beach at Santa Rosa Island, near Pensacola, was seriously messed up by a hurricane when I was there. It recovered in a few weeks. It's man the planet has problems with. 5/7/5/7/7, looks like a tanka to me. With excellent message.

An excellent tanka Teresa. Well crafted first two lines that are grammatically connected followed by a perfect pivot line leading into the last two lines. Loved the last line and the play on words.

Well done.

Blessings
Janet.

I have seen this happen first hand, not with a hurricane, but with a storm when the beach at Los Cristianos, Tenerife was snatched by the sea in a terrible storm. A hurricane is much more powerful and your poem is filled with action and imagery, nature is marvellous when it comes to healing after its anger, I wish you luck with your poem, love Dolly x
