5.30 Wind

Feelings seem to drag hours through wind.
Dusk blusters across a clearing
where something fizzles,
whizzing round like white lightening in a tin.
Heat congeals on a musty scent of fading flowers.
5.30 almost succumbs,its lumbering parts expire
in a day become tired. The wind seems to list,
loosening into a breeze, then settles.
Air stills, space between trees eases back,
choking on raw emotion.

Nice. Tightly wound around the scene, words act the part, in its conveyance we almost suffocate.  

L9, i think, needs fixing.

Thanks DL

Can't stop. Off to work while winding down through the breeze of life. I'll consider your suggestion but Opal will probably make me change it anyhow.
