shock waves

Posted to Action Poetry

i watch fascinated
by the strange apparition
the wind is shaking one limb
of the maple tree
it undulates, then swirls
up - down
then through the leaves
beginning to change into fall colors
a tiny black face peeks out
followed by a bushy black tail
which jumps to the the next branch
bounces, runs back
leaving that limb trimbling
amazing how one small creature
can create such a reaction
while simply going about
his daily routine
creating shock waves
of bouncing leaves and limbs
painting a picture of chaos
where none exists
