The Sunday Whirl

Birds fluttered away from their nests to take cover in the bushes. Rodents were scuffling to find a sheltering hole to crawl into. As I hurried inside my door at last, my temples were bursting, my steps weaving and I plopped down on the nearest chair. The air was thick with unexplainable fear.
