Silent In Flow

With the passage of a tortured wind
Course and noisy against the bend backs of dying trees
I catch a glimpse of swallows and egrets
in the grasp of the furious arm of nature
Silent in flow, driven to the pit of hell

The tail of Maasai Mara twisters
Spanking the cloudless sky with the vengeance of a devil
A taunted elephant bull crushing through the foliage
leaving only death and destruction in passing

Poet's Notes about The Poem

I was seated on the verandah of a tourist hotel in the expansive Maasai Mara in Kenya when I observed the passing of a twister before the rainfall!
