I don’t know if this is about a tornado, or just a windstorm of somewhat epic proportions that occurred. I have NEVER been in or near a tornado, but was in two hurricanes that sounded like what I have written below. Or, it was in my mind, only which is par for the course.
Wind’s Fury 2018-71
The soft whisper of wind picked up
Slyly increasing in its tempo
A rustle here and whirlwind there
A foretaste of gloom and woe.
A hint of things to come very soon
With branches falling like bullets
Raining down to the ground with might
Impaling themselves with such a fright
A sudden hailstorm arriving with vengeance
Peppering the earth with half white substance
Collecting in the cracks and crevices below
Lying on the ground in a mound like snow.
A banshee sound, racing round tree trunks
An eerie voice of future doom
The whistling tone in the background air
Casting a spell inside the room
A crack then a crash came the limbs and trunks
Crushing down toward house and home
Destroying all amongst their midst
Turning “whole” into pieces and hunks
Passing by it continued cross the land
Wrecking havoc in a path of despair
Letting all know that it was there
A traveler of terror so grand
Then a quiet ensued in its wake
A calm, a gentle rain from above
The smell of bark and ozone left
A remembrance of a winds fury unloved.
