AT MISS CELIA’S BARN YESTERDAY
The winds blew one of the big doors in,
my fault, I had forgotten to attach the cross brace.
Easy fix though, just took some well placed wacks
with a mallet and it popped over the rim of the floor
and back out into place. The trouble being
The howling gale trying to blow it back IN.
Had to work between gale force gusts.
That wind, loud and destructive,
roaring monster–rously around us
flinging things about,
scaring the piglets
with loud bangs.
It is quiet this morning.
The winds have moved on.
