Born In Peoria , Illinois . Watching the devastation , from Peoria to Pekin , Illinois . Fearing this storm is going East and will come back for more.
God bless all the people that endure such horrific Battles.

Earth Water Fire Air

 The Earth is angry 
   Air combined with water 
     Wind combined with earth 
      creates destruction and fear

  Many have suffered in our past 
   we have always been at war 
     some wars so Evil , we try and forget
      never forgotten , Imprints stamped on hand ~

  History does repeat no doubt 
   this time the war is something different 
    Land , women , money , creed , race , is not what this War is about .
     We have been abusing our gift of Nature for too long now.

  Fighting Earth , Water , Fire and Air 
   that is our War now, worse then all combined before us
   This War has no mercy,  like the many before,  men have sacrificed themselves for.
     This War is taking its Count ,  "Earth , Water , Fire and Air " 

        Tornados, Tsunamis, Earthquakes, Typhoons , Evolution ..
           how many lives will be given , before she lay still ?

    Shanity, good morning. I enjoyed your write, and am aware that you are worried about our fellow human beings that suffer because of the Colossal outbursts of nature. I consider you a good and caring soul, and look forward to see you in my contests again. I am also content that the winning placements of your last contest, went to Native Americans mostly; I applaud your decision and consider it upright. I am always your poetry pal and friend. Pass by my posts if you wish, to write a line or two. G.

    Thank-you my sweet friend ! Those are beautiful words, Of course ..I did not know it would hurt another , this was never my intent . I think anyone whom has judged had a hard time putting numbers on fine poems. I love all the writer's here, you are one I admire so much. S.R.

    I agree, we need to respect Mother Nature so much more than we do! Many of us don't realize what we would not have without her! A great poem, Shanity, very well expressed!

    I fear Mother Nature will never lie still Shanity...She always shows us who's really in control...Being from South Louisianne, I am quite familiar with her rage and revenge...In spite of all our technology, we are helpless children before her fury...Thank you for this finely crafted and VERY relative write - Tim

    Very Wise ! Having many friends down there , one a famous Musician died in that storm , I know I was there before the storm hit , and I was told by the man whom died , If The levy Breaks , They will choose 1 of 2 places , Baton roulette ~ or New Orleans , He was right, they choose N.O.

    After Katrina, New Orleans raised and re-enforced their levees which is fine but guess what? We on the Northshore now suffer severe flooding even from minor Tropical storms...The water has to go SOMEWHERE you know? So it simply followed the path of least resistance...

    I agree with you, Shanity. Earth is rebelling against us for our sins against her. Good poem!!!

    Oh ..I am sorry I did not see this earlier ..I just read all these . Linda, your poem is outstanding , i do believe when it was entered i moved it to the winners circle right away , then ..more entries came in, it became very hard to even put numbers on poems that were outstanding . When i moved them over ..a 6 digit number appeared at the bottom? only 3 had names ?
