Ides of March

It is not the same today
The wind under the door
is a little more bent that usual,
the dry leaves are shuffling a little slower,
the crows are cawing, perhaps,
a little too sharp.
The young leaves are wary
of the slightest rustle.
The postman’s noisy bicycle
is creating ruckus on the gravel
but the dust shies away from rising.

The wind has started blowing again.
Yesterday’s wind had a cleaner breath; today’s seems tired. Too tired 
to push the half open window.
The lone white curtain
shaking the dust has fallen
on the gasping wind
creeping in 
under the door.
