Tricks the Autumn Wind Plays

                                        Tricks The Autumn Wind Plays

The plastic tarp on the garden
moves like a stranded sea creature.
It breathes and flaps in the wind.

Its rock-tethered arms,
tremble to be released into this breeze
that teases it with freedom,
and memories of watery depths,
and now, the dream of flight,
having tasted air.
