Writing Challenge #23—Vivid Dreams

Tornadoes chased me, sometimes five at a time.  I always ran, sometimes I was indoors.  Sometimes on the prairies.  They never caught me but I ducked, sometimes they destroyed towns above me.  Sometimes I wondered the streets, heavy heart crying and looking for my sons.  Sometimes I was in a glass house watching them come down, and sometimes they swirled above me.  I dreamed of tornadoes for a long time, every night as twisters chased me across the prairie and lightning marked my hair with a silver streak. Whirlwinds in my head for over a year. Hair turning silver…

Then I was sentenced.

And I never dreamed of them again.
