4am wind whips
round my flat rattling walls
I’m not sure what the weather is like with you but here we have blustery gales ripping up trees, closing roads and causing trouble. Wind is one of my least favourite weathers. I tried to explain why to someone a few years ago and they didn’t get it. Maybe it was me, maybe I didn’t explain it well enough, but I feel like I am being attacked by the wind. I want to retreat, run away, hide from the enemy. I want to pull a duvet over my head and block out the howls with a pillow. I take the weather personally.
