When the winds of change blow into our lives, all we can do is let go.

A Strong Wind Blew


A strong wind blew,

Ripping me,

From my rooted space;

My arms and legs flailed violently,

As my body spun wildly;


Fear captured my soul,

As the dark wind had its way with me,

Undermining my wishes,

Taking me away,

From all I had always known;


My eyes burned,

Filled with swirling dirt and tears,

My lungs fought for air,

Death would surely come,

As the unstoppable wind rushed on,


The wind carried me along,

Clearing a new path,

Across city streets,

Down the interstate,

And the countryside;


Hours, no days, passed,

Before, the wind died away,

Dropping me back to earth,

To a new space;


Fatigued, I slept hard,

Sleep secured me,

Held me in both arms,

Loved me ‘til morning;


Sunlight awakened me,

Filling me with new energy,

To stand on solid ground;


Wobbly, I rose,



I saw,

A new town,


I took my first step

To a new beginning.

This is a large volume of poetry (560 pps) which seeks to capture the spirit and issues ordinary individuals (myself included) struggle with here at the on-set of the Obama Age.
