Engines spinning, airplanes, wind and life collide in this thoughtless air like birds of a feather. The breeze is too cool and harsh for the turbine to handle the journey. Turbulance is a problem mostly. Africa is not far now, and the savannahs are beginning to stretch in front of us like the back of a farmer’s hand, wrinkling their sand and flexing in the wind.

at that moment the turbine were already fuming thanks to the pushing that him was doing to the plane, trying to escape from the enemies that where pursuing him in that cold night.
the only thing that could be seen in the dark sky where the remnants of the falling airplane surfing the sky illuminating it with the flames that were generated by the flaming turbine

metal molded meticulously into something meaningful
meaningfulness is often confusing though
what is meaningful?

There was a huge turbine in the enormous hall. Steelgrey metal sides and a whirring sound that made the two children go up to it and put thier ears to the cool metal. Inside it hummed, as if alive, and they felt it

The turbine of the boat moves quickly, I presume. I’ve honestly got no idea what it is but I’m assuming it’s what makes the boat go fast. Boats are interesting in the way of their nature, staying afloat while everything sinks.

Wind turbines cause motion, motion causes effect. Cause and effect. Every action has consequence and every consequence has subsequent actions. Not that this means much. Tireless drivel.

The wind blew across the field as the propellers turned nearly pushing him off his feet. To be in the presence of such power was amazing. His company needed to harness this resource immediately. He turned to his companion, aware of her knowing glance. “why didn’t you show me this sooner?” “like all good things, only experience yields the best results”

first thing to come to mind was to look it up! So this is what I found: tur·bine n.
a machine in which a moving fluid such as steam acts upon the blades of a rotor to produce rotational motion that can be transformed to electrical or mechanical power.

Turbine. The word of the past,present and future. The process of creating energy, while mostly thermal heat energy is created. Its using the force of something powerful to convert the kinetic energy of a moving fluid, either water or wind into mechanical energy to make an engine transport, create electricity or change the movement of an object. Time ticks- but thats a cog in a wheel.

The turbine blasts a blue-white flame and I’m close enough to see the heat alter its surroundings.

The boat tumbled to a halt, the prow sending ripples across the clear water.
“I think it’s here,” my compaion said after the engine’s rumble. “I see the shadow.”
I looked expectantly at the river, looking for the familiar figure.
And I saw it: a swift moving blur of black moving through the waves. We prepared the necessary materials and got ready for the big catch. I felt my heart pounding inside me like a drum, every beat an increase in suspense.
This time, I thought determinedly, we’ll have it for sure.

The turbines were the whir of his childhood, the soft hum that sang him to sleep in the backseat of their old jeep whilst his father worked into the night on everything from airplanes to automobiles.

Okay I don’t know what this word means. I have never heard of it in my life so I can’t write anything. Ummm I guess I will just wait for my time to run out. Lol.
By samantha on 07.10.2012
i saw a turbine the other day. Its a very usefull machine. I mean the ingenuity of the machine, just brilliant. Using water to power a machine.
By Saif on 07.10.2012
The engines were gone. But I can still feel the roaring of the turbine. Maybe this is what happens when everything you believe in betrays you. I was there, I was staring in space, I was aware but It didn’t matter. He left. I can still feel the roaring of the turbine like the way I still felt everything we did. I was feeling the past. I could not let it go.

TURBINE , resembles the word turbane, which is banned in many countries. people are suspected to hide guns in their turbanes and attack others for money.

planes and cars. they move because of this. actually i’m not sure. but the word itself. it’s almost like onomatopoeia. it says what it does. or it could be someone learning english and thinking it spells turban. now there is a problem.

I think about my dad. He focuses on nothing but autoracing. Tells me about the turbine engines of indy 500s past. Who cares? At this point, no one except him and a multitude of old men that have never accomplished much in their lives.

The turbine from the car made a deep heavy sound, like the breathing of a robotic monster. The car heaved forward and was propelled down the cobbled street leaving behind only dust, a few bits of dislodged road and black charcoal smoke.

Everything was spinning around inside his head. Doubts and confusion. Wishes and memories. Successes and failures. Nothing made sense, it just flew around in his mind, each element fighting to be noticed, fighting for attention.
His mind spun like a turbine. Although there was no decided purpose, somehow, it pushed him forward.

The wind turbine waved in the wind. Josie went and told her Pa that it might spin of the sprocket and then they would be out of electricity. Pa would probably yell and scream and then go fix it after Josie was fully scared.

The turbine engine caused a revolution in air travel. Its powerful thrust made the De Havilland Comet the first commercial airliner.
It was invented by Bill Jenkins, famous Canadian engineer, who at age 80 is still working on his many ideas for future propulsion systems.
We owe a lot of our progress in the past 50 years to the turbine engine. Thank you Bill!

Turbine spinning in my mind
always wondering what I’d find
If for a moment it ceased to spin
what forbidden thoughts might enter in
So I used to stand right in the breeze
amidst the bending of the trees
sleepwalking through my life with ease
oh turbine….you need to freeze!
as I fall to my knees
help me up if you please
it seems I’ve suddenly found my keys!

I allow the turbine of God to move my waters, to clean the deep seat of my sandy bottom. Turbine cycle will be guide by the spirit gentle or strong as necessary. After all the shifting waters will be clear & pleasant. As for now looks kind of cloudy….

There is a turbine in my mind that cranks out ideas, but it isn’t working today.

A turbine has something to do with wind, i personally think it is a weird word. It reminds me of airplanes and somehow of candy. Maybe like a lollipop. I like lolipops. Why don’t they make turbine-lollipops? That would be wonderfull.
By Liesbeth on 07.10.2012
what is a turbine is it like an engine
turbine without the t is urbine
like someone who lives in a city,
i want to live in a city someday
but the city’s no place to raise a family
like i want to do,
so where can i go?

last week i got my finger stuck in a turbine, no really. i was playing with the wind farmer generator, then bam, finger got stuck, true story.

This sounds a bit like a turbin, I used to wear a kind of turbin when I was a little girl and had just come out of the shower, I used to feel a bit odd wearing it and like I was being a little racist, I didn’t think anyone else wore one but later on throughout exposure to media and talking to people I realised that other people did it and I kinda felt not so stange anymore
