A non-rhyming poem about wind
The treacherous breeze blows stubborn fences
eventually breaking their will
wooden boards tear loose
relinquishing their hold
branches are twisted and broken
but not without a fight
sadly the wind triumphs
howling and cackling
as it watches the gloomy trees
look down at their lost branches
with despondency
then it moves quickly along
whirling leaves and dirt
it hoists a plastic gnome
and drops it down
breaking off its pointy head
leaving its silly feet and body
apart and alone
A ceramic angel small and sturdy
defies the wind
but is cracked from winter's cold
Garbage cans scoot helplessly
across driveways
their lids rattling
The roofs hold on for dear life
Thunder cracks, a menacing threat
but then the wind dies
the fury becomes a whimper
