In The Breeze

a swirl of ravenous winds,
pummeling down at high velocities
a trinket lost in the damage
a house, a home
more than a million and a half to count
tin roofing and metal scraps lie
dormant in the wreckage

palm trees sway gently in the breeze
the waves lap precariously ashore

unless it is intact
it is finished
