Dark Winds Of Change




To whom do I cry,

Of these feelings inside

The ones of an impending doom

that on a near horizon loom.


For I can feel it thick in the air,

As if the summers wind to my soul, chose this secret share.

It is too unusual for me to try to explain,

However, I can smell it coming, coming all the same.


You may think that I have no basis for this feeling within,

and that I have at long last stepped off the deep end.

But all I can say, is that this feeling is real,

And that these winds of change have came into our lives to steal.


For I stood naked tonight beneath a starless sky

And I heard the heavens moan and the earth sigh,

I felt the light of this world move in a slow retreat

and I grieved its exit as total darkness we are soon to meet.


There is nothing more that can be said,

Other than, we shall soon number our dead.

I say these things all unto you,

In hopes that they are misgivings…unfounded…and untrue .


I know that some may say I am a loon,

And some may even think I a seer of doom,

But all I can say is what I felt tonight

And pray that this feeling soon take flight.


~Oh Lord Don’t Let It Be~

We are all in the prayers. Hope we won't see that day. Very heartfelt and expressive write Allen.

The impending doom Allen may well be the Cosmic Realignment that God has designed for the predicted End Times..!!

I too , share this feeling of Doom and Judgement , which can't be avoided..only prepared for as eileen alludes to below , preparing by ensuring that we are in a state of grace...for the advent of such cataclysmic events .

Brother in Peace / Love

You been sniffin' that paint again, Al...LOL? How many times have I got to tell you, that is not good for the old brain cells? Or are you a Nostradamus for our age?

This poem has more than just power, it exudes some form of depression, I think, which is of course you, unfortunately in a lot of ways, reflected through all your writes, but this one is still in all just a bit different. I can't seem to put my finger on it. I do like, however, the 4th paragraph, not that the idea of you naked does anything for me, (thankfully I didn't just eat), but the part about the heavens moaning and the earth sighing, two excellent statements, that I wish I had thought of as well...

Your own personal "depth" within your writes seem to get deeper each time you write, of late...hope, do I, that this is a good thing...Peace always to a friend and poet, Ed & Rufuz

Awesome J. Allen!Your work is phenomonal! An inspired write, and I too
hope and pray we don't see that day! Yet, we must be ever ready.
Reminds me of something I learned in a motivational seminar
The five P's...Prior Preparation Prevents Poor Performance!
I never forgot it!
