Tornado

Storm chaser
taken unawares,
tornado could care less.

Twisted heavens,
suffer little children
to come unto me.

Why?

Whirlwind force
cracks open the graveyard,
the earth moves.

Muscular vortex
imposes strength of will,
without thought.

Forgive him
for he knows
not what he’s done.

The wind cannot rage,
it moves at speed with power.
It’s the people banging their fists:

raining tears,
raging.

  1. The super storms predicted as a result of global warming seem to be coming true…I fear the sadness of this event will be repeat all too often in the future.

    • I think you may be right Charles – we had some tornadoes not far from here (only small ones but still did damage to some houses) when the floods were happening – not something we’re used to seeing (we have lots of cyclones but the intensity of an f4 or f5 tornado is something else!) – we just think of them happening in the USA.

  2. I was surprised to know that we have several each year in Quebec, minor ones but still causing damages.

    I like these lines, they are so true.
