August Wind

August wind blows dry
Dark clouds gather in heaps over the mountains
Restlessness is in this unsettled air
I stir from my summer stupor
I wonder
What will tomorrow bring?
But for tonight
As trees toss limbs around me
Waving leaves like black lace handkerchiefs against the smoky sky
I am caught up in this wind and carried on a dream
And I fly.

  1. Your style reminds me quite a bit of my own. I loved the "trees toss limbs around me", and your use of sibilance - I can hear it so well!

    I have a few poems from when I first moved to our new house in 2011 that I think you will like. I'll post them sometime.

    1. Kat, thanks for saying that. I hope you do post them sometime. I'm glad you liked my poem.

  2. Beautiful to be caught in this wind!

    1. Sandy, yes it is. It carries me away...
