springtime here in texas often means severe weather.

got the idea for this write just now; they were just testing the tornado sirens as they do on a monthly basis; but the sound still sends chillbumps up and down my spine! *SHIVERS*

oh, hear those tornado sirens wail--
severe weather season will soon set sail!

the sound alone has its own built in chill factor;
and the sound pierces my skin like a tiny dagger!

springtime here in texas means stormy skies,
and we pray that god up above can spare us our lives.

each time it "comes up a cloud" we are filled with terror and dread,
and we hope that during the storm we don't end up being dead!!

I've only experienced tiny twisters--dust dervies that inspire no fear at all. However, from this write...I'm sure glad I haven't experienced anything bigger! Great expression, Karen!

Have watched those powerful things ripping up wheat fields in Kansas. They certainly give one pause. You describe it well.

I can not imagine what a tornado would be like because I've never seen one. I also pray that God will shower his mercy on you during tornado season.

its well written indeed.
Somehow i see there is a more jazz poet in you?
Perhaps this or a new piece could be written(your good at description) with less of the words that hold things together.
e.g. sea blue rather than sea is blue.

It's that way all along the east coast. I lived in Ohio for a good number of years near tornado alley. Wicked. Although the Texas storms off the gulf are something else again. Good one.
