Silent Destruction

The violent 'V' Disguised in a black rain coat Dancing the meadow Gone undetected A moment of destruction Silently Creeping Ravishment rising Displacing time, hope, lives, dreams Silent aftermath -------------------------------------------------- With respect to tornados

    Abe, You are so right about tornadoes. They are to be respected and avoided. Nice write. D S-J

    The sounds of a tornado are silent untile the core hits. Then the silence returns. Excellent descriptions. Tyler

    Yes, tornados can wreak havoc on beautiful land and homes, but, you have captured a beautiful image in this wonderful write. Thanks for sharing!

    This is beautiful. Thank you for commenting my poem. No intentions to disqualify any of your poems; the far eastern poetry forms tangle...apologizing. Your poetry is lovely to read. I wish you all the best.

    Great writing. I love the line "Disguised in a black rain coat" an excellent description. tornadoes are such a powerful force of nature. You captured the truth of them well in this one. Smiles from Lolita

    Excellent write, Abe. The cyclones give little warning, but the devastation lingers in the "Silent aftermath."
