Abide the Wind

I now feast on the Northwest wind,
futility, my constant friend,
tumultuous, raging deep within
and I weep now for what has been.

Tranquility achieved, then lost
because I couldn’t pay its cost,
is thrown away; a stone I tossed
Aside.

Forsaking all, I chose my way
and sought a wisdom I’d obey.
I never questioned where it led,
albeit truth was never said.

There in my castle dream-design
the past resides in every line
where testimonies, un-benign,
Abide.

Why didn't I write that. Wonderful.

Dear Lou,
It's so wonderful to have 'found' you again! I loved hearing this, and I loved reading it. It has the power to 'sweep me away'- and that's a gift.
Peace to you and yours this Thanksgiving,
Ellen :)
