beyond words

In recalling an incident, in observing an accident, any or all of which can be disastrous and shocking. A destructive fire and explosion may leave one awestruck and beyond words to describe.

The entire front of the building was blown out onto the street. The flames from the remaining shell of the office structure roared over a hundred feet into the black night sky threatening to singe the twinkling stars above, leaving ME..'LOST FOR WORDS' to adequately describe the horrendous scene threatening me and my entire crew of fearless fire laddies!
