Her body lied down near the smoldering ruins
As onlookers looked with dismay
Shrieks of horror, and despair enveloped the crowd.
A Father loomed as he caressed her desecrated body.
Uncontrollable sobs sprinkled down like rain from clouds
A symptom of his inner maelstrom of emotions
Flooded his entire existence.
He scorned the pristine sky that abetted the mechanical birds of prey
The roaring thunder, the inner maelstrom
Ignited the once lush source of compassion and kindness
Devoured and consumed the kernel of his being.
