The storm

Winds yowled
rains lashed
trees groaned
creeeeeek,  craaaaack, crrrrrrrrunch


Rooty lid, sunken crater, creepy-crawly underworld of
            flat bugs
                        even-flatter squash bugs
                                    eat-em-up assassin bugs
                                                eat-em-bigger-better damsel bugs
                                                            run-away-quick stilt bugs

scurrying hither-thither in search of
another under-tree home.
