Twilight Wind
larrylark

You hope to sit in peace.
 1
Car discreetly parked,
 2
soon be dark.
 3
Imagine the world has gone to sleep
 4
and what’s not been done
 5
will improve with keeping.
 6
 
 
One leaf falls straight,
 7
Lands on windscreen, light weight.
 8
A robin drops onto a hedge close by.
 9
Twilight sighs as daytime vacates.
 10
 
 
The spell is broken.
 11
Wind from nowhere,
 12
Leaf’s blown down
 13
Robin, alarmed, ruffled feathers,
 14
flies away,
 15
Hedge vibrates with rustling sound.
 16
Some things just come out of nowhere
 17
Or so they say.
 18
 
 
As suddenly it slackens,
 19
sun’s back on horizon.
 20
Bright intensity of that last streak of light
 21
on a late Autumn day.
 22
 
 
As kids play among shadows
 23
one leaf falls straight,
 24
lands on windscreen.
 25
Robin drops onto hedge. .
 26
The world stands still.
 27
Darkness falls right here
 28
Just as expected the moon appears.

I mean l4-6 pretty classic. Bravo. The leaf motif may be heavy-handed? I dunno, play with it. There's certainly a good poem here
