Tornado Season

It's tornado season!

How horrible

To hear the locomotive roar


Shelter is taken

Within a house of straw

And fear dwells

Beside the prayers.

The trembling

Is never ending

As that which seemed solid


Shakes upon what was perceived

As firmament.

This made my mind go abstract, if that's the right word. I thought about the emotions you described and the landscape destruction you painted. I thought about how the two are equally deadly, if not more so when it's internal. It was truly insightful for me and I think others will also enjoy this read. Great write.

I especially loved the line "And fear dwells beside the prayers." Brilliant.
