Blizzard Spring

by Gwen Monohan

The twister was stronger
than any wind tunnel
sustained in a science lab.
Just not as steady.
These were whirling gusts,
howling as they whipped
and twisted netted branches.
Bending oaks and others
to their brown-barked knees.

Wrenching corn plants away
as well as mighty trees.
Sailing spare tires like airborne
lifesavers.  Some catching and
Ringing frantic chickens
with their white feathers
like giant tufts of snow
when it was over.
coating the spring grass.
