Ian Glass

 

 

 

Shelter

 

It starts with a whisper,

closing from the West

ripples across stooped hills,

grows grumbling to a moan.

 

Light dips behind low clouds;

wind presses clothes to limbs,

then rain slants sideways

cold from the weighted sky.

 

We crouch by tall stones, curling

weakness behind their enduring bulk;

safe in the hollow of the moment,

while the day blows into tomorrow.
