in shower of nonsensical stories

that plop randomly from

slurred lips onto wary

ears of unnerved

family members

in search

of cover

Puzzled robin perches on downed tree branch

next to nest of broken eggs.

Selfish force of storm has ripped potential life joy

from its safe sanctum.

Ravaged grove stands in stark silence except

for coo~coos of mourning doves.

wind whipping drops of moisture
