Wind and rain
Wind and rain
-
She felt the Summer's storm brewing.
-
How light she is
In both heart and mind.
-
Swept away, past the ocean's tides
-
Carried by the sea's gales
From a comfortable island
Where peasants reaped without tales
And each day was
Each season.
-
Her heart wasn't dense.
While everything was the norm.
Lightened with discontent
Until she heard the storm.
-
It carried her westward.
She lay on the mattress of brisk air
Almost willingly
Descrying in the distance an opportunity for rebirth.
-
Knowing not if this was her destiny,
She was fearful and anxious,
But most of all, spiced with curiosity.
-
And, her family wept at her leaving.
For, they knew not her heart's despair;
The maiden's envelopment of restless worrying.
-
And no one knows how her voyage ended.
Whether she landed in cool plains kissed by a warming sun
Where Autumn will rule its creatures for long.
-
Whether she landed in Winter's frozen pond.
Cold and enchanting, but ill fated and tiring.
-
But, even if she lands in eternal Spring,
She risks becoming homesick
For love of her family
And security a peasant's life brings.
