Double Tornado

. Cottonwood Tree stood By a deep gully Precariouly bent Until tornado Shook it to its core The strong winds blew Destroyed leaves Some limbs broken Roots were strong deep Tornado Shook to depth Of belief Tree stands Tall Still Saved

I recall a terrible storm where trees were uprooted and split in two in my city, it was heartbreaking to see those trees destroyed, I loved you poem because the tree stands tall still, saved!!

A nice example of a diminished hexaverse. I submitted one titled "Craps" just the other day.
