Eye of the Storm

I’m afraid for the trees—their broken

limbs and lifeless nests litter the grass.

The drumming rain hypnotizes, spring’s

spinning blue sky becoming armed tempest.

The birds proceed in flight like brides,

their wings caught up in the wind. Still

violets promise beneath a captured moon.

I stand among the suns of dandelions.
