Just The Wind! - Poem by Eric Cockrell

in my dreams...
quite often i am wolf,
running with the pack,
howling in the moonlight!

sometimes a hawk,
gliding spiraled unchained skies...
an old bluesman,
sittin' on a porch pickin'.

a half naked priest,
chanting o'er stormy seas.
a poet, prisoner, woman giving birth,
a man hanged for wrong reasons.

a lover killed by a jealous blade.
a bent over man picking crops,
in someone else's fields...
a drifter, and a searcher,

and on a good night....
just the wind!
