A frightful scene


Vicious palms cut their fang-like fronds through the wind. Back and forth, back and forth, they sway, promising to slap any wayward soul who dares venture near them. Even the grass below trembles with fear. Overhead, a searing sun oversees the scene with enmity. Another mournful morning in Southwest Florida.

  5. Having just spent a delightful week on Venice Island ... I know how NOT frightening Southwest Florida is. Though, your poem is delightful.

  6. I've heard those palm fronds in the wind with their thudding sound that's so surprising.

  7. Florida has some seriously scary weather, no doubt about that.
    An excellent write, and I especially like "cut their fang-like fronds through the wind"!
