(919) Storm Hypnotic-A - Poem by Melvina Germain
My nose pressed firmly against the windowpane,
as the booming sounds of thunder-
and streaks of lightening came.
The trees blew viciously, branches hurled to the ground.
I was glued to that window, couldn’t fathom my eyes,
as buckets, wood pieces, branches, passed by.
Realization of disaster came into play,
as I watched destruction form that day.
Oh the screaming was fierce as the thunder bolts crashed.
People scurrying and onward they dashed.
Help me, help me, they cried out like fools.
There’s no help to be had, this storm is so cruel.
The house began to shake, I heard dishes fall.
My pet cat shrieked as he bounced off the wall.
My eyes wide like saucers, shifting side to side.
Still glued to the window, no where to hide.
I heard the voice of my father call out in despair.
My son! Jeremy! Jeremy! ! are you there?
I could not answer, my throat had no sound.
No where to go, this house I’m bound.
I stayed glued to that window, fearful in fright.
My it was amazing what happened that night
The winds stopped blowing and thunder no more.
Lightening stopped bouncing off the earths floor.
The storm came to an end, calmness appeared.
Cries of the aftermath, heard very clear.
Devastation was felt, sadness of the heart,
We will rebuild, have a brand new start.
