The wind within a storm (poem)

25 Mar

The wind comes alive in a storm

The wind within a storm

Here comes a fresh breeze,
Brushing through the trees,
Nudging the leaves to one side.
Branches gently sway,
A storm’s on its way,
From this storm nothing can hide.

Strong winds start to blow,
Seeking high and low,
Every crack they will find.
Racing in and out,
Running all about,
Frequently changing their mind.

Some petals break free,
Setting off to see,
What else there is to be found.
The grass laying flat,
To avoid all that,
Staying closely to the ground.

Some seeds are released,
Into this wild beast,
Wherever it blows, they go.
Flying through the air,
They will land somewhere,
Taking root, so they can grow.

This storm’s going past,
It’s fading at last,
Just a few white clouds remain.
The wind becomes calm,
There’s no more alarm,
The grass stands up once again.
