Gale force

No one notices the leaves at first
Twirling around in the gutter
Nor the shivering of a sheet on the line
Then paper, dancing down the street
Announces the passing of the sun.

Objects snatched from owners
Join the parade
As Poseidon breathes harder
Tossing tiles carelessly from roofs.

Goosebumps form on bare shoulders
As trees prostrate themselves
Bending, now breaking like toys
As tears pour down from the sky.

Force triumphs
Then departs with soft caresses
Promising to return.
