As I am born


The day turns to rain,

and the sky gray.

Clouds fold together;

the air becomes bitter.

Sheets of rain, turned to knives of sleet,

stab at the earth below.

And all the trees...

Stripped of their leaves...

    I can feel the gravity and inertia of what you're saying as I read that. Shorter is impactful as your poem proves.
