Tropical Storm

todayJanuary 16, 2022 173

A gathering of darkness.
Wind shifts, lifts leaves;
plastic bags
like kites
soar high
above the ground.
An approaching sound: like the thundering
of a thousand
horses hooves galloping
hammer housetops
for miles and miles around…
A jagged bolt of light shatters the night.
A tree comes tumbling down.
