Question: Does this poem describe a Power Outage!?
Power Outage

No warning came
no alerts announced
awakened to abnormal
outage of power!.

Light switch flicked
no immediate relief
to morning's strange
darkened dawn!.

Sun risen, indeed,
my eyes so confirm
no comforting light
warms my soul!.

Ah, answer made clear
problem isn't with eyes
high water rising
short-circuited my
heart, 'tis power source
that's dead!.Www@QuestionHome@Com
