#poetry – Tornado

I watched with disbelief from way down here in Australia about the many tornados that wrecked havoc just before Christmas in Kentucky. My thoughts and prayers are extended to those who have experienced this horror. My apologies if this poem is too soon to post.
In the darkness loudly screaming 
A phantom sweeps the floor
More than one of many faces
Of this tornado's roar

Their menace and their mayhem
The torture of their gaze
Left the landscape ever flattened 
By their relentless graze

The stealth of their night-time journey 
Left carnage in their wake 
From afar I watch in horror 
At their relentless quake.
