PREPARING

A bristled silence settled between

the pause of winds.

Leaves relaxed like hands finding rest.

A sliver of fading sunlight cut to the ground

forming long lean shadows, resembling soldiers

preparing for battle.

Day resigns to gray overcast.

Without permission, weather finds reason to change.

Easterly winds baptize with rain.  Dusk lowers

its curtain.  Night follows.
