How Is The Weather Outside?

A single brick atop

the wall

Appears to have been

wiggled loose.

Is it safe to chip

the cement away,

And let the brick be

removed?

 

Someone’s been working on

the ancient door

But it’s completely sealed

from within.

Dare I to break away

the seals?

Is it safe to let the

door open?

 

I think of the comforting

sunlight outside

The warmth pleasantly

mixed with the breeze.

The feel of the wind blowing

through my hair

And the sounds of nature

around me.

 

Then I remember the pain

of the storms

And the harshness of

their screams.

Is it safe to step

outside?

Or will a hurricane

wash me away?
