Hurricane Hellana

Violent storm
spins out of control
on the unsuspecting
trees that surround her.

She rips assailable limbs out of their sockets
she brakes a branch in half,
disregarding sensitive green leaves
recently born.

Her vitriolic tongue
lashed a house
full of egos,
destroying the looking glass
they once possessed.

Bare and unarmed
the autumn shrubs
finally succumb to her will.
