Weekly Scribblings #44: Eye of the Hurricane

 In the idioms section of thefreedictionary.com, "eye of the hurricane" is described as follows:

  1. Lit. the area of calm in the center of a tornado, hurricane, or cyclone. 
  2. Fig. a temporary peaceful time amidst more trouble and strife yet to come
For this week's prompt, I'd like you to craft your words around either meaning of this phrase. New prose and poetry are both welcome, as are fiction or non-fiction. Just remember, one entry per person and please keep your prose to 369 words or fewer.

    I haven't blogged since April, but you have inspired me!
