On the wind under the eaves

The wind

under the eaves

is moaning

droning.

The ghost

of March

not knowing

April is here.

Flaunting

haunting

as if it would

as if it could

reach in

and pull me

from

safety.

It groans

it moans

it finds

no entry.

It cannot touch

not now

not ever

the stillness

within.

  1. “as if it would / as if it could / reach in / and pull me / from / safety.”

    These lines, right here. They speak to your strength, to your resolve.

    Just beautiful.

  2. I pray that the wind will not touch you within. Unfortunately, it’s touching more and more and taking many day by day. Thanks for sharing your writing. Will you be sharing a poem every day?

    • The relentless moaning of the wind under the eaves here has been an eerie, metaphorical soundtrack of these days, for sure. I wrote a poem in my Spiritual Journey post today — I like to think I could write a poem a day for April but wonder if I can sustain it.

  3. The moaning groaning that you have heard at night is a representative sound haunting us all. I have used the darkness of the grey skies as a similar symbol since there is so much pain out there that is touching humanity. If you can write a poem a day for April, you will be documenting your days. I wonder how many of our thoughts will be read by those years from now, Fran. Will people understand the depths of pain and the lengths we will go through to protect our stillness and faith? Thank you for lifting me with your poetry, Fran.

    • I’ve wondered about people coming across our writings in the future … that is a profound thought about “depths of pain and lengths we go through to protect our stillness and faith.” As always your perception is amazing – thank you for lifting me with your words, Carol.
