Kristina Nimblett, Phoenix writer

The ground begins to shake.

Buildings start to collapse.

Memories come flooding through think this may be your last.

You pray you don’t die, and that your familys safe, but all you feel is the ground quake.

Sidewalks crack open; trees plunge down.

Its finally over, but trees are still tumbling down-

Last 30 seconds, but felt like forever,

Homes lost, families broken apart

How in such little time something can be so destructive?
