Nature the Destroyer

she orchestrates storms her air - which we deplete - she turns against us feeling ungrounded - she quakes inside ancient bones. . . we feel her pain water fills her veins from oceanic wounds. . . . she bleeds tsunamis with red hot passion she is seething at her core. . . . fire will be our death Written by Andrea Dietrich For PD's NATURE THE DESTROYER *HAIKU FORM ONLY* Poetry Contest

I thought about what Chris said of my haiku, and I decided to take out the "and" words . I think Haiku read much better without them and I don't know why I keep acting like 5/7/5 is set in stone!!

and when will we learn to NEVER underestimate the MOFO called Mother Earth! Just last week she reeked HAVOC on IndY, Ky, and Ohio, as well as some southern states. I always find it quite odd when people videotape twister. I mean, that would be the LAST THING my white azz would be doin during a 175 mph duel to the death! whaddabout you!?! I love the PO-eeeeeeM!

What can we do to appease her rage. When we ignore the lesson's of this wise old sage. She's showed us in many ways. The shortening of her tolerant days. The final chapter's out of our hands. It's hard to say what truth still stands.

Nature's revolution starts to end from time to time, we are bound to bear, all are helpless. Though, it makes justice. Very deep philosophy, loved always, bl
