 As The Wind


As the wind

tears the leaves from the tree limbs

standing thin

like the arms

of the eldest in

the nursing home,

as the day passes

into night

before the mail truck

drives in,

as we notice

our breath hanging

in clouds

before us,

it reaches in;

to touch us,

to take hold,

to enfold us,

stealing us from

our finite homes,

the darkness.

. . ."until the Light
Saves this night"
Are the words I long to send
To the end of "As the Wind"

Exquisitely expressed, Kathleen. Luv the reference to "the eldest in
the nursing home" as my own sweet Mother is fast approaching that
dubious honor.
Peace & Blessings,
