This is a story that I was told. Then I created this poem. Enjoy!

The winds blew strong with such great force
No one expected it this way.
The branches bent down to the ground.
The apple tree blew away.

A woman standing with child inside.
From the window she did watch.
The little children with terror in their eyes
Away from the windows they rushed.

Creaking of the wooden walls,
nails pulling from the boards.
The child holds tight to a little doll,
looking to the sky, praying to the Lord.

No time to waste, No time to be scared.
For their home they had to leave.
Quick as the snap of a branch cracking,
the roof cracked blowing away.

Dear Lord the winds will kill them all
if they dare to go outside.
Adrenaline running through the mother’s veins
The worst she’s seen in life.

Winds pinning them to the fence,
grabbing tightly to their hands.
Never would they forget this terrible time
while living on unpredictable land.

Gusts of winds would tear at them
while walking to another house.
They risked the walk, frightened to stay.
The waves crashed high over land.

Pregnant mother, & her two little children
Holding tightly to one another.
blowing blowing never knowing
If they’d see another year.

Finally the made it to the home
of a loved one they all knew.
Riding out the storm there
while the wind just blew and blew.

Marlene Reid . 2003
