Catch the Wind

The wind is blowing

like it has something to say

it grabs my attention

as the trees start to sway.

Their branches bend

as if they were under attack

before a brief lull

and they straighten right back.

The leaves on the ground

are gathered into a ball

until a violent gust 

blows them over a wall.

Men are left to chase

their hats down the road

while women make their way home

with brows tightly furrowed.

The first drops of rain

are felt on my hand,

outstretched trying to catch the wind

as it hurries through the land.
