NaPoWriMo Day 5

Had a writing club Zoom meeting and the prompt was invent a scenario or character that is directionless. Maybe directions can be the character?

There are more than four cardinal directions
There are jays and robins and chickadees
But seriously
There are more than more than more
East has a sister
West has a wind
South with a meadow
North…well, North holds tight
A clenched fist   a locked door
With no key under the potted plant
The weather pivots
The trade winds barter
The tide adores the moon
Satellites orbit and grind
Clicking and collecting
Like house sparrows
Nesting on the fence out back
There are more and more and more
Until they fly away
