This Night’s Wind

This Nights Wind short poem

Photo by minds-eye


Tonight’s wind is not the one found in the chimes of daylight
Not the gentle breeze cooling your skin after a day’s labor
And it’s not the invisible current lifting a child’s kite far above treetops

This night the wind carries dark secrets
With prying fingers it rattles windows long since closed
Its deafening roar screams to be let in and heard
Torn up are the things left unguarded

Tonight it searches for a way in
Far away from windows and doors I stay
Holding tight to the truths I’ve made
