The weathered wallboards groan in a rhythmic sort of way. The roof creaks, protesting its lifelong plight of protecting its structure below. The window panes – what’s left of them – rattle within their crooked frames, asking only for the mercy of stillness. And outside, the wind howls.
Spider webs tremble between rafters high. Mice hide beneath the bales of hay, perhaps wondering if their homes might be blown away. Crickets peek out from their hiding places, surrendering to silence against the mighty gusts. For outside, the wind howls.
The battered doors clank and bang, their hinges straining at their bolts. The loose shingles beat a constant pounding song. The dust lets loose from the cracks and crevices to swirl in mini storms across floor. And outside, the wind howls.
Bits of dried alfalfa join the dust in a rigid dance, sprinkling the wavering spider webs with their presence. Dampness hangs in the air, mingling with a scent of airborne water and thirsty earth. A few barn swallows huddle atop a high rafter, as the moving air shakes their foothold. And outside, the wind howls.
But soon – very soon – a warmth begins to spread through the old barn’s skin of time-beaten boards. The sun has finally slipped past the veil of gray. And as the glowing rays permeate the scene, it brings with it the tranquility longed for. The wind, no match for this greater force, backs down to lick its wounds and prepare for battle on a better day.
In my mind, I am wrought with stress of worry, apprehensions and questions without answers. I weaken under the strain as the winds of life threaten my stability. But soon – very soon – the warmth begins to spread.
And outside, the wind howls no more.
