Tornados

A vortex of wind dancing, with drums of thunder
Waltzing, plunders the lands it turns
A partner revolves around the twister
Thunderous beats escort the funnel clouds
Darkness split by flashes of lightning,
The music and tone are set, for the cyclone
Calm eyes in the storm amidst a lethal cyclone
as in the tune of another drummer, this thunder,
Thunderstorms of awe, so this dance turns
Beholding beautiful hues, of an intemperate twister
Red with dust this wonder, from the clouds
Darker still at night,from fright of lightning,
Nightmares clash with the lightning,
so goes a chaotic song, of the cyclone
On the hills, spinning to outbursts of thunder
Winter dreams as the snow white whirl turns
Ironic sisters are the natures of a twister
Before the aftermath of the disastrous clouds,
after beauty does cease, from benevolent clouds
Masters of destruction, with cracks of lighting
Etching the land, as upheaval follows the cyclone
like locust and frogs, now plagues do thunder,
as if, showing its true colors, when the tornado turns
Once a beautiful sight to behold was this twister
but destruction and misery follow the proud twister,
Righteous job found out, from the passing clouds,
Angels of light fall like the lightning
Nations are overturned, by the deadly cyclone
but as God’s love changes the sons of thunder,
Tribulation and patience take their turns,
The world continues, with all of its turns,
The sun blisters, fire whirls like a twister
Awaiting true beauty, from the clouds
Suddenly, shining from east to west, like the lightning
A world without death and a deceptive cyclone
We dance in the clouds, shouting victory like thunder
Beauty turns as fast as lightning
dancing clouds reveal the twister
A deadly cyclone roars with thunder

    This not the original poem. I had to edit because I am restricted by word count.
