Hurricane Havoc

"Hurricane Havoc" dangerous winds rage uprooting trees to tumble drenched by rain torrents. flooding waters wrath swallow bridges crumbled stones violence and death. power lines cascade sparking flames igniting homes volatile darkness. ocean waves invade breaching sand dunes overflow beaches dwell with fish. hurricane havoc shelters contain precious life Mother Nature cries. *For SandyIvy Davis's Hurricanes - Only Haiku Contest. *American Haiku 5/7/5 syllable count.

You've depicted the power of hurricanes well here, Linda. How I hope that the coming storm won't add too much damage -- you and all those affected continue being strong and helping each other-- thanks for asking, my mom's doing relatively ok... miss you as well and hugs to you!
