Catch the Wind

Photo by Min An on

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.
