A windswept day beckons the heart of me, I

Hear it whispered there, even as it moans

Through the old hollow tree in my backyard, a

Somehow forlorn coexistence to the hollows of

My inner self, a not quite unpleasant sound like

Ancient music strummed by timeless fingers.


And I listen to that nature’s song, both within

Myself-the nature of what I am-and without, a

Memory surfacing of some long ago train in a

Now forgotten town, its whistle blowing beyond

My open window, the child I was looking up at

A summer moon as I stood there in the night.


Funny, what a March wind can do, when the

Sky is slowly bled of light, clouds pregnant

With rain blotting out the sun, funny how it

Seems to know, that wind, things I thought

Left behind, but somehow felt in that singsong

Lullaby, swept along its wake like yesterdays leaves.

So evocative and tenderly warm, inspite of the melancholy feel. Your poems, even when "moody", have so much "air" circulating within them that they breathe very easily: I think I am a very dense writer, and so I am in awe of your ability to keep it "light". Yes, this wind returning... it is like it just is the same wind passing through our long-forgotten veins again, bringing back those "messages" like a returning train... wonderful analogy here.

Vivid, beautiful imagery. Lovely, a very lovely write and one that takes the reader on a trip of their own, back in time.

Winds have a way of toughening us... and as we head into a new spring season, its easy, at times, not to want it to arrive... everything comes alive, as well as memories, we wish would just leave...

After reading this, my heart is beckoned as well. I love the train whistle in the distance. I hear it every other night as the coal train travels along the Monongahela River. Such night whistles are a comfort to me.

A nice introspective write that has stirred up past memories.
