Cypress bows in autumn rain
Bearing weight as if in pain
Casting shade on what remains
Furious dark storm unrestrained
As limbs of trees lay broken, felled.
Thunderclouds gather, striking fear
Roosted birds take wing, disappear
Sensing the change in atmosphere
As a once calm wind heaves and swells.
