The Winds of Change

I thought this poem would be appropriate because of the cold, windy weather we've been having.

The Winds of Change

The wind, curling, meandering
stealthily shares its history

slinking, down alleys, seeping around
every entity, into the bones of life

A giant growling, fearless creature
arcing its back low – preying

On each new discovery, traveling the world
it howls at night, and then lashes out - during the day!

Shoving past unseen, its invisible breath

Shakes our immortal dreams of change
forever watching but waiting

Bringing hope; it has stroked the forehead of the sick

Bringing doom; it has crushed the bones of the earth

And then, with its loud roar it has brought death to the fragile
and has twirled the world into chaos

Wrap up tight for he awaits, his icy lick
prowling for the naked flesh

He is unforgiving, playful, but forever immortal…

I love to write - I go through stages of expression - sometimes I concentrate on poetry and then other times I attempt short stories.
