An eerie stillness pervades.
Something looms in wait.
         A happening, maybe, ready
         to sneak out and grab, and shake until nothing can see straight;
         a thing, mabye, ready
         to pounce, to strike, to rend.

Moments ago,
the wind blustered
and fog wafted
and rustling echoed
and the world was ALIVE...but
Something has come

         to kill it.

Now the world, stifled, cowers
as Something looms in wait.
         Nothing sounds
         Nothing shifts
         Not even the wind
                   dares breathe -
         Nothing dares,
but Something looms.
