Cyclone Season


first drops echoing off the tin chimney top chill
and the black cockatoos are going westward.
that warm breeze I was taught is a portent
well it’s blowing from the north
but all I can do about it, is close my door
and hope for fair weather.

In Australian, black cockatoos are considered to be an omen of wet weather. Rain is supposed to be coming from the direction from whence they came or if they head inland, cyclonic weather can be expected. Also folklore has it that you can determine the number of days expected by counting the flock; a day for each bird.
