POEM- One Winter Wind

Updated: Nov 25, 2020

One winter wind

Will end

This fall

Before its time


So stand and stare

as this event

Twists its way into the air


You can watch

As this

Tragedy

Falls at your feet


Then walk out

On the heels of that front

Through a spoilt opportunity


In search of old friends

Neighbors

Who made their homes

Have all flown for warmer weather


Did they leave

Before their time

When did they catch word of what’s to come?


Bear witness

As branches sway

And speak of aches

Now freed to their retirement


Giddy as they

Discuss their golden years

In bright anticipation


The younger ones

Talk of lights

While parents

Worry about the weight of coming snow


Lost leaves

Like loose pennies

Neglected and forgotten face down


Was the climax

In the change

Or was it

The moment of release

And the journey to the ground
