Poem: A Home Momentarily

By: Kimberly Potter Kendrick

temporaryhome

Viewing destruction
Disbelief
13 weeks
Comfort
Security
Contentment
Stolen away
A thief in the day
A thief in the night
Spinning tornado
Destroying all that was precious; all that was valuable
Destructive path missed no space
Mind not comprehending
Tears, tears, unstoppable tears
In fetal position bawling
Puzzle pieces dumped throughout
Some wet, some bent, other burned
Salvage a possibility; doubt
Unable to think, tears brought sleep
No desire to awaken
The nightmare; reality
