This is the freebie for the April 2017 [community profile] crowdfunding Creative Jam. It was inspired by a prompt from [personal profile] alexseanchai. It also fills the "lightning" square in my 4-1-17 card for the Month of Rainbows Bingo fest.


"Twisted Wind"


A storm rolls in,
dark clouds heavy
with water and ice
and electricity.

Rain buckets down,
hail hammers the ground,
and lightning flashes.

The sky turns on itself,
and the twisted wind
reaches downward.

A tornado dances
across the hapless land,
picking up a skirt of dust
as it twirls around,

a tall spiral fountain of doom.

Notes:

A tornado is a violent weather phenomenon caused by rotating air.  Learn about tornado safety.

Beautiful but rough (emotionally), as intended.

A sequel poem exists, because the [community profile] crowdfunding Creative Jam is cool that way. Details on sponsorship at the link.

Well worded description/narration of an event that is powerful, though frightening and dangerous.

Thank you!
