Cyclonic Storm Migration

Near the Azores    that’s where they arise

tropical depressions        that wander westward

fed by warm water           weakened by windshear.


Over the Caribbean         hook right, head north

now a named storm        sprawling spiral

single-eyed cyclone        hell-hurricane.


Then northeast, following         Carolina’s coast

Mid-lantic states   Maritime provinces

eastbound now      and called extra-tropical.


All the way back   across the Atlantic

post-tropical cyclones     can still pack a punch

killer storm-strike           on old England’s coast.


I still haven’t seen          the circuit completed

remnants re-finding        the westbound flow

regaining strength           south-west of Gibraltar.


First time for everything—

          second time around?
