We were ready:
Trucks protecting the Stop and Shop windows
Sandbags at Cheryl Fudge dress shop, down by the harbor
Shops boarded up on Main Street
Not goin’ anywhere…
Warnings at Surfside–all the locals go to the surf beaches
to watch the waves…
Of course, it’s not safe, but it’s real.
That’s what all those who scurried off the island missed.
The sand was blasting–it felt like being stuck with pins,
we had to turn around to protect our eyes,
sometimes real hurts!
This is as close as I could get to Brant Point,
the Coast Guard blocked access because the glass had
broken in their signal tower and it was blowing around.
God moves in a mysterious way;
His wonders to perform
He plants His footsteps in the sea
And rides upon the storm.
