A  tornado stirs the earth 
Thunder roars a deafening roar
The sky darkens and widens 
Picking up wind and speed 
The cite of an angry, dark cloud 
Town and city—ravaged
Civilization left in ruins
Debris collects and pile on 
Dust and ash collect in the wind
A blinding sight 
Glass shatter 
Schools, homes and hospitals shaken 
Roofs collapse 
Cars take to the air 
Soaked and jammed are their parts 
Trees yanked from the root
A sharp clamorous cry from the survived
Deafening and startling are their sighs
Fragments of life left behind
Specks of green leaves and brown twigs 
Coincide the black and gray gloom of this moment in time 
Fresh blood and open wounds 
A graveyard under the sky
A morsel of faith persist 
Gravity falls upon the frail
A particular discipline  and command to resist and to release fear and uncertainty 
Trembling, the air cool after the storm
