This is a very nice and very well written 20 word poem you have penned for the contest. You used very good descriptive words about the storm and the lady. You also used very good imagery from the art work you chose. Best wishes in the contest. Teri

Hello, my friend,

I imagine storms must be fierce in Australia. You describe it well in your poem entry the 20 words contest.

Well done,

Gypsy

This is excellent, Kace. Best of luck in the 20-word poetry contest with this fine entry. Well described ~ "thunder growled" and "lightning finding its mark." Marilyn

    Hello little squirrel (all quiet on the squirrel -front?) thanks for reading, glad you liked. Love, Kay.

    Hi Kace... or do you prefer Kay? Much deck activity of the squirrels and birds. So cute. Got lots of photos. Hugs, Marilyn

    I was christened for the actress Kay Francis (many moons ago) so, Kay is my real name. :-) XX

    I remember Kay Francis. Wow. Your mom really must have liked her. Initially you told me your name was Kace, but now, Kay it is. :) Marilyn

A very nice analogy of searching or reclaiming ones search. It also has symbolism of consequences expressed through the tone. It allows the reader to decide what fate awaits the person here.

This is a frightening poem about lightning and how it can take out just about anything. Great job with the prompt. Aussie. I see some 'm' alliteration and internal rhyme with late/grate. Thanks for sharing and best wishes. Respectfully, Jan

    Hello Wombat, Thanks for reading and appreciating a little story/poem. Lightning in the outback kills cattle and splits huge trees in half. Love, Kay.

Very scary for someone traveling alone when a freakish storn comes through hoping to find a safe place to wait out the storm.

    Barbara, You would know what a freakish storm is, living in the country; spectacular but sometimes deadly. Love, Kay.

You have captured the powerful violence of the storm in just twenty words. Lightning cracks are always horribly loud and frightening because it means something has been struck. Strangely, people have even survived direct hits, but I can't believe it would be very many of them. Best wishes in the contest, Kace! xo

Hello Kace, not just spot on with 20 words, but the wording is great. A free verse worth reading as such. Your picture is very dramatic and the whole of this posting in well displayed. Good Luck in the contest. Warm regards Dorothy xx

You manage to tell a complete story with this short poem, Aussie. Well done. Your poem is particularly timely for those living in the south of the US. We just lost dozens of people to a funnel cloud tornado that found its mark in the middle of the night. It's scary around here in the spring.
By the way, congratulations on your recent poem of the month win. Well deserved.

    Hi there Debbie, Yes, I heard and saw the devastation on TV. Tell me, people get wiped out in Tornado Alley, come back to build again??
    Glad you liked my contest entry. Love, Kay.

reply by Debbie Pope on 08-Mar-2020
    Yes, we keep building and rebuilding. Tornados just keep sweeping through, pretty much in the same pattern.

reply by the author on 08-Mar-2020
    I'm still scratching my head and wondering why rebuild knowing it's going to happen again? Maybe cause they own the land? Very dangerous - you could move to Oz, no tornadoes here!

reply by Debbie Pope on 09-Mar-2020
    There are houses that get knocked down twice, and many are damaged multiple times. To me, though, the real problem is living in the fear. We have tornado warnings a dozen times a year. That alone is so disruptive.

    OK, so why do you stay?

That was really good, Kay, I especially liked the internal rhyme in the first and third lines. I like to see a good electric storm with lightening dancing in the sky, but it's not so nice when it's sheet lightning and hits buildings, trees of people! This is an excellent contest entry, my friend. Well done and good luck. :)) Sandra xx
