Hooligan Wind!

Hooligan Wind! short poem

Photo by unukorno

I watched the wind having wicked fun today
Stripping leaves from trees and hurling them like confetti

Ashes In The Wind

Ashes In The Wind short poem

I stand before you on the edge, A risen cliff above the ocean. Many times my life I’ve pledged, Followed the book and went through the motions. But you’ve forsaken me, my Lord. And I hear nothing but the wind.

This Night’s Wind

This Nights Wind short poem
