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.

Thanks, Marianne! Sometimes the words scramble onto the paper - take a look around - and fall into place ;-)
