Dust blowing everywhere
Tumble weeds seen rustling by
Hoofs stomping all around

Saloon doors swinging
Cowboy's spurs are all clanking
Horses always neighing

Jack rabbits hopping by
Working from dawn until dusk
Life on windswept plains

Brown dust, whistling skies
Windmills spinning wickedly
Prairie grass rustling

Nervous animals
All noises suddenly hault
Fiercely twisting wind

Cows lost, crops ruined
Manifest Destiny past
Cowboy's always work

I like it, especially the part when the tornado came in and “All noises suddenly hault.” It reminds me of a Willie Nelson song.

Yes, it was a tornado. I liked this, and it's an interesting contrast- Haiku (Japanese poetry) about the Old West...
