The Storm

On a warm Spring morning,

Children are laughing and playing,

Fathers are spraying their young lawns,

And Mothers are planting their gardens.

By afternoon the sky quickly blackens,

Day becomes night, darkness induces fear

Among the residents,

The unruly wind blows the rain,

And the rain adheres to the leaves with tears.

The wind intensifies.

Birds struggle to fly.

Children are crying.

Suddenly a snake like cloud appears over the picturesque hills,

Fear turns to panic.

Residents attempt to find safety from the approaching storm.

A young mother and child,

Struck down by the wind,

Struggles to stand.

A father and son alone in a church,

Crawl under a communion table,

Praying for protection

In a moment,which seems like a lifetime,

The storm is over.

Within the shattered homes and scattered rubble,

A dying woman is found with her baby cuddled beneath her crying.

A father and son are found beneath the communion table in a church,

The entire church is gone except for the father and son and that table..
