Powerful, yes?  This is my take on it...






The Ravishment of the Lady


The skies were so blue
not a cloud could be seen
a blur in the horizon
BAROOM!

The skies were so blue
not a cloud could be seen
smoke rising
A shape in the distance
BAM!

The skies were so blue
not a cloud could  be seen
Black Smoke
A scream!
Sides split open!

The skies were so blue
not a cloud could be seen
Silence
Smoke
Fire erupts!
WHOOSH!

The skies turned black
not a cloud could be seen
Bricks tumble
Smoke all around
SCREAMS
ROAR!

The skies are gray
ROAR
The sound is deafening
 Smoke clogs the lungs
Debris is raining from the skies
RUMBLE!

The skies
The sounds
The smells
The smoke
 REMEMBER!



Have a thoughtful and purposeful day!
Hugging you
