Wednesday, October 10.
One of the most powerful hurricanes
ever recorded
slammed into Florida
It was the third-most-powerful
hurricane on record
to hit the continental U.S.
The storm soaked areas
still recovering from last month’s Hurricane
Daylight revealed a horrible scene
Florida families emerged cautiously
from darkened shelters and hotels
to an unfamiliar and perilous landscape
The full extent of the damage
was only slowly becoming clear
“That’s the blade from her ceiling fan.
That’s her floor tile.”
We have to make sure things are safe
No property was left undamaged
Michael was the third-most-powerful hurricane

In this assignment, we were asked to read an article and find lines from an article and form a poem. For my poem, I chose the Hurricane Michael article. I enjoyed this assignment because it was fun forming the sentences into a poem. When I read this poem, it makes me think about how Hurricane Michael affected florida. When other people read this poem, I hope they learn about Hurricane Michael and what it did to florida. I am very soory for all the people affected by Hurricane Michael.
