the sky is falling!

Seriously? I'm not used to trees. This is crazy!

So that's what falling sounds like...

it's the displacement of the air of an object falling, moving through space pulled by gravity.

Tree branch came easily down - the crunch - and the falling sound of a large object heading downward. On to what? Us? Unknown till it hits.

The landing - somewhere - roof? No thud. Yard? Driveway? Street? Still too dark to see out the window.

Don't move. Do not move. Stay with me here in bed. The perceived safety of being in your arms. Don't go look just yet - just wait a few more minutes. Until the dust settles. Until the boughs are done falling. Until my heart stops pounding.
