Superior

We like poems that paint a vivid picture and this one from Raymond Byrnes does exactly that.  His poem is a photograph of a stormy Lake Superior.  It’s an apt description of how quickly conditions can change on the big lake using images that are familiar to those who know the hard working inland sea.
