She Came In and Changed Everything

~ Yolanda--her name ~    Featuring:) Leonora Galinta

From a hell storm,
A mighty she devil took on its form
Like a woman scorn ascending from the sea
Haiyan whipped across the central Philippines,
A deadly typhoon, maximum winds of around 315 
Terrorizing the fragile mind before making landfall
Hitting with the center eye off from her hostility 
A merciless turbulence that came and changed everything

Like a Massive Storm  
She comes in as the wise thief of the day and night, 
In her notorious gust of rage roars in disguise of thunder, 
With the company of her own knight of darkness, 
Raze all in a blast of waves wherever her path crosses, 
Ruining one of the cities down to a devastation in the land
“Pearl of the Orient Seas.” 

A mighty tempest in a woman’s name….. Yet, 
A disgrace with more than an immortal man in strength, 
Nature devouring nature itself 
Including her stewards and stewardesses
An unmerciful encroachment, robbing, killing adults and children. 

Yolanda, so cruel in her evil walloping!
A gust left smiling,
Engraving echoes of tears, from every single mourn
Vain, wicked, and colorless -no other air’s compare 
The lives she stole, one heart at a time
Pouring down the most nauseating rain, 
The pain is dissenting with everyone-- everywhere.
The bully of wind, invading sands of serenity

Unknowingly, far beyond your back----------------------------
Everybody will be summoning up more than your strength-

    Hi Linda! Another great write, metaphorically speaking. Strong, deep, expressive. You turn a tragic situation into an object of awe. regards to Leo // paul

    Awesome display of applying persona to Nature Linda, Leonora, the metaphors are so heavy with emotional attitude, a truly selfish and cruel demonstration of her power, seemingly aimless, and total, reckless ego in a way. The genius of this write is how unmistakably visceral it becomes, like Nature Herself. Masterpiece. A FAV., art worth studying PD. J.A.B.

    She did... She did indeed... What a very touching collab Linda and Leonora.. God bless you for writing this and thanks for all the support you gave to my country. And thank you for all the Christmas wishes and carol... I sang with you in spirit and even put in 'hohohoho'. Thanks for the smiles and love, friend! I hope you are well! Sending you hugs!
