The wind whips

Leaves hidden

Below the melted snow

The evergreen sways

Its branches flowing

Sounds unidentifiable

Raspy and shifty in nature

Maybe the sounds

Of metal and cement

Lifting in the wind

My hair is full of leaves and dirt

Painful to the scalp

I scurry to the house

Entering my home

I sit in my chair

The lights blink

As I listen to the wind

I feel safe


Surrounded by four walls.
