As the sun set

the wind did blow

its gusting presence disturbed my soul.

And as the trees bent

it took its tole

on hillside

canyons

and the valley below.

 

The sounds of howls

the occasional gust

rattled the house

that I hoped I could trust.

Storm shutters in place

a definite must

on a house this old

during any good thrust.

 

 Then came morning

and the wind died down

and up on the rooftop

rain was the sound

Raindrops on Tin

was much better I found

Than that blasted wind

blowing around.

 

As the sun rose

over haphazard terrain

the view became clear

through a large window pane.

With the shutter removed

I could see the stain

Of wind driven dirt

untouched by the rain.
