Such a peaceful day, but they say a storm is on its way!
Funny how if it looks peaceful it is hard to believe it any
Other way, but it all happened that day.....
Hail and howling wind, a bright yellow white glare, a stillness
Then h*ll unleash, fences, houses, trucks and cars pulled into
A funnel, sound like a Freight Train in a tunnel, Pulling it all,
into the black clouds with might. Spinning debris out of sight.
Nashville Tennessee, heading for Fort Campbell Kentucky
I did not feel so lucky!!!
As quick as it hit it was gone, but one side of the street
Was a house of Cards, this storm hit quick and hard!
Well I was wrong .... I was lucky that day, I was one of the
People who could walk away.....

Sweet days of summer, slowly slip away
Crimson sunrise and Harvest moons
Look down from the sky.
There is a beauty to the world that catches
The human eye, but God's good Earth is
A masterpiece, full of infinite worth...
Care for his gift, our souls he will surely

It is a solitude beyond the reach
I have seen it slowly come my way
A price to great to pay, sleeps in
The light of day...
Over the Mountain past the Sea
I seen it look at me..
In peaceful starlit nights
I feel it's warmth and special sight
My days and nights bond together
It follows in all kinds of weather, yet it
Waits.... Why does it stand still?
It has a nature, and free will...........,
Solitude arrives it softly kiss my eyes
It's gentle touch means so much
It walks along my side, when tears
Flow, not a sound can you hear......
It flows in rythmatic through the years
Now gone again, to visit men in life
And death...
It follows until the final breath...
Solitude, you never eludes...
You've shown me my silent soul
I hear the drums roll, and the final
Bells toll...

There was a place far away
Where the the children would
High on a hill top near the bay..
One day they climbed the hill
To try to find adventure and thrill
Unlike them at all they began to fall
Their names Was Jack and Jill!
Who fell down that hill...
You may beaware of The Nurserary
Rhymes this one's been around
For some time. So we'll stick to
the same story line...
So down the hill, to the bay
Not a scratch on them the
"New, Jack and Jill,"was
Safe on the bottom of the

"Long live the King!"
He looked into his people's faces
Loved was found as he traces....
He gave his people seeds
Among them were some weeds
They were told to pluck them out.
One weed was overlooked........
Full of thorns and Poison
It grew and swallowed the fields
Crops were unable to yield
What was this evil weed that laid
among the seed?
Some say it was greed....
Some say it was need
This weed now made it's own seed,
The wind carried it near and far
It consumes the land, and blocked the Morning Star...
Then one day a storm
Struck with power, killing
The weeds with it's lightening
And intense shower..
So now the weeds lay dead,
To see it would not return,
They gathered the remains
to burn ...
The King and Knights
Cleaned the land of this
Evil Blight.
The skies soon...
Recovered with Precious
The King was thankful
For the mighty shower
For wheat now grows for the people's flour...
Once Upon A Time...
Lived a Kingdom so fine...
