Nature on a bit of a rampage, ain't she?

The sky, murderous;
blue-black violence
aimed at the heart like
the end of a gun.
Mankind can't escape;
Nature, unerring;
deadly accurate.
A master marksman
has us in her sites;
she means business.
We think we can hide;
she knows all of our
secrets; there will be
no getting away.
When it is our turn,
she will exact her
revenge; she is a
lethal assassin.
And we, unwilling
victims in her game.

(c) 2006, Karla Dorman.

Nature is boss whether we like it or not. Nicely done, Karla. Love and peace,

Nature can appear quite cruel at times, which you have demonstrated quite well in this write.

You paint a picture of the power and changing moods of storms, Karla...excellent writing.

When it is our turn,
she will exact her
revenge; she is a
lethal assassin.

She truly can be, but perhaps we are not 'unwilling victims;' perhaps our modern day atrocities against her have now riled her to the point where only revenge is on her mind. Quite a frightening thought.

Excellent write!
Love, Birgit and Roger

Mother Nature as a killer...true but seldom thought about as an assassin, good write and works well.

Reviewed by Paul Williams 4/9/2006
Superb metaphor Karla, in light of recent events I'd say you got this one nailed.

Outstanding write!!

You do know how to spin up great weather poems :)

Love Tinka

Yes! Mother Nature put on her black dress of vortex weave and marched all across the southeast lower part of our country. She sure knows how to keep us on our toes although some of us don't want to dance.
I admire your emotional prose about the weather. We all are victims at one time or the other.
Love nd peace,

"she will exact her / revenge;" ?? Revenge? Nature can think and plot revenge? News to me.

Hit the nail right on the head with this one. Wonderful write. Excellent and insightful.

Hugs, Trish
Reviewed by Regina Pounds 4/8/2006
Excellent, Karla! your vivid assessment is original and right on the mark. Just last Sunday a tornado - for eight deadly minutes - struck in a neigboring town. It's one assassin who doesn't miss a target.

Great image.
