November Wind

Trees sway,
leaves fall,
branches become menacing.

It is not the power of the wind I fear
but the result of that power,
not knowing what will happen
but knowing what could.

Potential disaster all around,
I sit transfixed
at the movement, the sound
of wind.

Now suddenly quiet, as though
sucking one more large breath
to blow down
these candles of trees
surrounding me.
