The Dark Wind

Free Verse

Throughout the night it cries
among the trees
and around the houses
as if looking for something
something that is no longer there
and it cries
like a lost child in a supermarket
running from aisle to aisle
screaming MUMMY
howling down every chimney pot
calling
crying out in the night
and its path it leaves
a trail of destruction
tiles in the garden
trees broken
from the search
and it moves on still seeking
alone
to another night
