Lots of news recently about extreme weather uin the midwest and south. This poem was prompted by a picture i saw.




Take shelter

It comes,

Inexorably, looming,

Darkening the sky

An eerie hush

For a moment

Gathering force

All nature

Letting loose

Take shelter.


Take shelter

It comes,

Vengeful, Unknowing,

Full of destruction

The wind roars

It is here,

Tearing, tearing

Take shelter.


Take shelter

It comes

Powerful, mighty

Chilling the blood,

Death’s finger

Spares no one

Protect yourself

Take shelter.

Chip, I guess I missed this one when it posted. Much enjoyed it, though I may be reading more into it than was intended...

Since we've both lost our spouse, I'm stuck on the phrase ".. Death’s finger - Spares no one"

I'm not reading anything about the weather into this, but something more along the lines of seeking shelter from the dreadful pain of losing a loved one. I guess that's one of the benefits of well written poetry, everyone doesn't get the same message from it. Thats a good thing.....

Definite thumbs up on this one.... Dick

Scary place to be, in that path. We had a close call in our Missouri residence a couple of years back. Our neighbor lost part of his roof, we lost a window. Not bad considering. Patrick
