Urban free verse poetry: Yellow Breathing Dragon

I anticipate a storm.
The yellow breathing dragon from afar,
has breathed its massive plumes.
Smoke lingers in the air, suffocating life from lungs.
White speckles-blanket everything.
Even the sun hides, wearing an orange face.
Hearts are heavy.
An echoing emptiness, of existence, now
settles upon broken bones, branches, within scars.
Dull white forces patches of green,
Coating, what once was a crimson red bloom.
Petals are weighted, wilted.
Distant Gray clouds loom, deep pain.
I anticipate a storm coming.
Jagged fingers strike in the distant.
It may last a day or two.
Flowers can feel the change in the stale air.
I, can too.
Trees bend to the left, awaiting its force.
I hope for blue skies and droplets of tears.
