Words on the Wind

The wind roars, distant at first

and then more insistent, rattles the windows

the wind whistles

a high-pitched, ear splitting whine

the wind knocks

at my door

shoves everything against the ticking clock

where I feel the pulse

the beating of the wind

the fever that’s struck

out of fear

that the wind will turn silent,

leave a gaping hole between its last sigh

and its whisper –

and my hope –

that the wind will carry something new,

some words will blow my way

when it comes back around.

    love the wind in your poem Lynn! Carrying whispers, and secrets to waiting ears. I could feel the anticipation of hope like the wind was a living entity. Lovingly penned words.
