Eye of the Storm
Wind, at one end of the spectrum, can be a gentle and pleasant breeze. At the other end, it can be furious and destructive. For my piece for this challenge, I chose to interpret the hurricane end.
With climate change and climate crisis being so much in the news and in the forefront of our thoughts, I feel that we really are in the eye of a huge storm. Literally, the hurricanes hitting the Caribbean and the US are terrible disasters for so many people, and they are getting more frequent and powerful. And metaphorically, we are almost at a point of no return – if we don’t do something about climate change now, its consequences will make our planet earth inhabitable, and destroy mankind and civilization.
We owe it to our children and grandchildren to take action now.
