This is another standalone poem from my linked series, a work in progress, ‘Breeze’.
So much work in progress! One day, I’ll finish one of these projects, but for now I hope you’ll be satisfied with a few extracts. Unfortunately, I just don’t seem to have a great deal of time at the moment…
It is like a small dog,
The wind is.
Nosing into corners, and
Snuffling around piles of leaves.
Making them leap up in surprise,
And slowly come back down again.
Suspicious of the wind,
They cannot keep still,
But are continually on the move.
Looking this way and that,
And glancing over their shoulders,
Whispering ‘Did you see that?
‘Did you see it?’
