the mightiest of whirlwinds and storms,
While its contemporary counterparts constructed at electric speeds
bombastic; but collapsed like a soft pack of cards; at the slightest
The thick rooted Banyan tree seemed outlandish; with infinite dusty
cascading from its body; although it bore the brunt of the cyclone open
chested without budging an inch from the place it had taken birth,
While the rose embellished with glistening dew drops; looking

The large feathered grandfather eagle appeared rustic; flapping its
wings painstakingly in the air; although it soared like a handsome
through the ominous cover of black clouds,
While the silver streamed aircraft swished like a rocket through space;

While the stream plummeting from the mountains looked enchanting;
producing a mesmerizing sound; but the assemblage of water shrunk to
