Blown into the day

Seagulls swirling patterns in the grey-cloud dawn.

A silhouetted crow caws welcome from a factory wall,
then spreads wings to invisible air,
lifting off for higher towers. 

Rain and leaves in the blustery sky.
The tail of Hurricane Gonzalo weakly wagging
as night turns to day.

Diesel trains purr their patient routes,
commuters pour over morning news,

And I drip dry on the station platform. 
Blown into another day.
