It’s Friday and Kellie has once again prompted us to submit a Free Write Friday post… so here goes. Be sure to visit Kellie’s page to see all the postings:
The warnings came as they often do
Of storms passing through the area
Was it that they were so frequent
That there was so little hysteria.
Of course we listened as they broadcast
All those warnings to interrupt tv shows
Using that time to refill our snacks
“They always miss us”, what everyone knows.
But this storm would prove so different
For the winds did blow in with a fright
Multiple cells combined and became one
Leaving a path of destruction this night.
The sirens came on, went off and back on
Such a roar as the twister hit the ground
Lives were lost and futures were changed
So many structures torn to pieces around.
Many have heard of the fate Joplin faced
But the love of so many pulled together
Rebuilding homes, families and so much more
Brings out the good of one to another.
