"At first glance I was unsure if it was the recent hurricane that inspired this, after seeing other comments I see I am not the only one that thought this. I found that I enjoyed how the author is able to use something so tragic to create such an emotional and moving piece of writing, and I did like the sublte alliteration of puffy palms.
Whilst I enjoyed the thought of a hurriane in ones mind, I'm not too keen on the closing line, I just felt that it wasn't as emotional as the rest of the piece as I found it to border on cliche the way the author phrased his/her thoughts here.
That was the only line I wasn't sure about in this poem, and I think the author did a lovely job at expressing their thoughts throughout this.
Again, I applaud how something so sad can create such a beautiful piece of writing"
