Twisters' Wrath


A recent spate of tornados.                                           
Rescue crews in search of survivors.
Fears that the death toll will rise.
So much destruction.
Mother Nature’s wrath.

The Tornado tearing
 apart houses, stores, sheds,
and the school.
The Tornado tossing
cars, trucks, and buses.
The Tornado shredding,
toppling, thousands of trees.

The Tornado roaring,
 so loud, your ears hurt.
The Tornado driving
right through the town.
The Tornado ripping
roofs off houses.

Tornados.
Violent storms.
Deaths.

 I personified the storms as “The Tornado”, because it feels like the tornado is a malevolent entity, descending from the skies, cutting a swath of death and destruction.  It reminded me of the “smoke monster” from the TV series, “Lost”.
