Flying in on a Lento poem
Autumn brings a cast of frightful creatures
wrought from Mother Nature's wrath,
brought to bear on wings of Chaos,
taught by a raging psychopath.

Florence came to call and delivered
torrents of swirling wind and rain,
pouring toxic waste through streets and homes,
roaring across the plain.

Behind a traffic barricade,
we find a hungry crow
inclined to hunt for road kill.
He dined on mangled doe.

Satisfied, he preens his ruffled feathers.
Rats and cats and dogs quarrel,
battling to survive in scene
that begins the journey back to normal.
