Sites to help:
Merriam-Webster.com Use this site for syllables. I’ve used several online counters and too many have given different counts for the same word, so I use the dictionary now. Also, in some parts of the English speaking world, the syllables may come out in the spoken language a bit differently. And that’s okay. Write to enjoy, too learn, and yes, try to get the syllables right, but above all create and enjoy.

Our Atmospheric River
The waters rise; we’ve had enough.
Mud slides, rivers rise, and the storm
does nor abate; ’tis not the norm
and it will test us, just how tough
we are: do we have the right stuff.
I say this from my comfy chair,
miles away from soggy despair,
consumed by sorrow, waters rise,
I feel the loss, avert my eyes,
and thank the Lord that I’m not there.
