"...Never boring and always/
electric to watch!"

The skies shaded in
darkening hues of terror; clouds
swollen, pulsing with

malignant intent --
the wind, hushed befoere
the chaos to come;

red boxes issued;
radars crank up; weathermen
go on high alert,

matching the high risk,
dangerous situation
building overhead.

Spatterings of rain
do not cut humidity,
only enhance it;

the birds go silent
as sirens moan in warbling
pitches of warning,

'Take cover!  Twisters
in the area!"  Chasers
converge with the storms --

should be used to this,
I'm not.   I'm not!  But this is
life in the Alley,

Tornado Alley --
never boring and always
electric to watch!

(c) 2007, Karla Dorman (4/25)

You've got my heart going with these words and images. If you get the chance, tell me about red boxes.

Excellent poem about the feelings of fright and the power of nature.

Your poetic images are wonderful. Reading "Life in the Alley" I could nearly feel the electrical current of the storm all around me.

Reviewed by Felix Perry
As one who has only heard of Thunder Alley on the news and TV the idea of so much of Nature's fury concentrated in one area both scares and intiques me and your writes always bring us into the heart of it.

You really are a storm yourself, a whirlwind of words carrying a rain full of rhymes.

Not to my liking and I feel for those who lose their lives and homes when hit by a tornado as happens each year.
