Glen Sorestad: Winds of October

Fierce blasts unleash
from the west to batter
yellowing ash leaves

Predatory gusts snatch
at reluctant clingers
wrenching them loose

to skitter and whirl
to clutter sidewalks
and streets with ochre

Flaxen elm leaves sprint
eastward in a foot race
to no apparent finish line
