    If you have ever seen a time lapse of a super-cell spawning a tornado, I think you'd know the beauty of which I speak

    Beauty can be frightening

    I wonder if this could be seen as a 'turbulent' relationship between heaven and earth by my religious brethen? ?

    As Asim said, sometimes our minds are like this, very, very turbulent... Thanks for sharing Kelly.. Like all your poems, this one too, is highly open to interpretations...

    Sometimes the interpretation is left open on purpose, sometimes it's just a happy coincidence. And I'm sure there are those who would put such significance on the natural phenomenon.

    Great Haiku. So many people think they are writing haikus when they are not. They miscount the syllables, but you never do.
    Well done, as usual.

    Thanks, Kim. I have miscounted at least once and have mislabeled Senryu as haiku but I am getting better

    I have lived in 'tornado alley' my entire life and have not seen one in person. It is something I would like to experience first-hand before I die
