Tornado on Two Wheels

6/2/2011

 the air was hot and humid

the ebon sky eerie and electric

thunderous and umbrella like

leaving me no safe haven

hurricane winds whipped across my back

a hard driven rain stung my face

I hunkered down

warm against her engine

behind the faring,

trying to shield myself from the elements

raised the throttle

ripped through the gears

and exclaimed

"C'Mon girl, let's get home safe!"

she must have heard me

because she obliged

we roared up the road

rounded the last street corner

blowing debris rushing by us

climbed the driveway

rolled into the garage

safe... and away from the storm!
