Wind Poem by Colleen Courtney


Rating: 4.1

As the wind howls outside
It knocks at the windowpanes
It whistles through the doors
But yet silently
I hear it whisper your name.

Over and over
Again and again
Your name
Drifts through my air
Envelops my space
It encompasses my world
And quietly shatters my soul.

How I used to love
These wind tossed nights
As we lay side by side.

The wind now
Is like liquid poison
It seeps through my veins
Insidious to my being.

How I despise the wind.

The calm always comes after the wind. I hope it has found you, perfect one

Memories are always associated with various beauties and comforts of nature. Wind is a nice example and an impressive poem as well.

Toss in the turbulence of the wind but rest in the tranquilly of the breeze. Good write, articulating loss in a powerful message.
