Just A Passing Wind

I can just see the clouds riding along the wind
breaking formation, watch a tornado spin 
Lifting up houses, then throwing them down
destroying each structure, there is to be found
smashing and crashing around

But then all the swirling just disappears
leaving some thankful and other's in tears
vowing to rebuild, although it'll take years
and hoping that everyone's found
It's just
Mother Nature playing around
Dodo dodo do Dodo dodo do

Down in the keys, the wind seems more friendly
It fills up my sails, makes my boat ride the seas
But then there's a season, the wind starts to roar
we board up our windows, nail shut every door
Hurricanes, you shouldn't ignore

After a while, the winds seam to cease
Humidity rises and so does the heat
searching for water and something to eat
Hoping that soon it'll be found
It's just
Mother Nature playing around
Dodo dodo do Dodo dodo do

Up there in the mountains, the air is so crisp 
the breeze is so gentle, like Moms kiss on your lips
and then your informed, there's a fire alight 
Sierra winds, have gotten strong over night
Some choose to stay or take flight

But then the wind calms and the rain starts to fall
to wash away memories, ashes and all
It's time to rebuild, should be finished by fall
I'm beginning to like how that sounds 
It's just
Mother nature playing around
Dodo dodo do Dodo dodo do

    I enjoyed your take on the wind in this creative poem, Jerry. From the wind of a tornado to hurricane winds, you described the scenes so well!

    You go Jerry - what a wonderful wind blowing this evening! The imagery is magnificent, i.e. "like Mom's kiss on your lips" - so beautiful! I expect to see this highly placed on the winners list! Excellent write, my friend and a 7! Pandita
