Back Into the Sky

The silver clouds Turn black as night In an instant Green makes its way within A churning flow Creating fear about Then the rotation of the clouds Form the greatest Tornado A giant massive form That moves slowly across the land Leaving terror And destruction all about The darkness Still moves in circles Pulling the earth within it It gets closer And closer Until right before me It dissipates Leaving me alone In front of the mess That it made The touch of wind As it broke apart and lifted The tornado flew up Back into the sky I felt it ~~Poof~~
