From the North, The Wind – Free Verse – October 23, 2014

 

wind and rainfrom the north, the wind
funnels through this happy valley
raising dust in streets and alleys
howling like a banshee witch …
greetings from winter.

from the north, the wind
creeps into my bones at night
and toss and turn as I might
I wake with aches and I know …
winter is near.

from the north, the wind
bringing polar Siberian cold
pushing into exile –  the last warmth
that kissed this happy valley …
winter has returned.

    • Well … there was supposed to be a sort of progression … a build up from greetings – to near and then it’s here. Nope it’s not here yet but that darned north wind has been blowing here two days straight and the temps have dropped .. but we do have sunshine and very clear skies.

  1. …. the image just really emphasizes that “chilled to the bone” feeling in the poem ….a valley as a cold, damp rain funnel. Brrrrr!
