Winds of Change

a gust of wind, blowing
thoughts of yesterday into
my already crowded mind-
replacing today's list of
"go here" and "do this"
with "remember when"
we had nowhere to go
and nothing to do
but feel on our faces
a gust of wind, blowing.


  1. It is always such a soothing experience coming here.
    This is lovely.

  2. its always nice to recap lovely memories, and so nicely shared in verse

    much love...

  3. I like the shape of this, and the feeling comes through most effectively.

  4. We always long for a time when we had no responsibilities. You've captured that feeling very well.


  5. Thank you all, dear friends! :) Have a beautiful Thanksgiving with the ones you love. Thanking God today for all my, friends, this blog and the joy writing brings to me. Much love!

  6. Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family.

    Excellent poem and a very important message!

    I have always enjoyed poems mentioning the wind.
    My favorite quote from a poet from Wales:

    I turned my head and saw the wind,
    Not far from where I stood,
    Dragging the corn by her golden hair,
    Into a dark and lonely wood.

    The Villain
    William Henry Davies

    Reflections of the long ago Maryland dairy fill my thoughts every time I read, 'The Villain"

  7. Beautiful writing, Kristin.
    Have a wonderful Thanksgiving full of many blessings!

  8. To you and yours, Kristin, best wishes this Christmas season! _m

  9. another comment and another holiday greeting...

    Happy New Year to you and your family...

  10. In my best English and composition:
    "Where you is?"
    __We have, all of us(es) missed you!

    __Hope all is well, and I offer the best... belated as they are... Holiday Wishes to you and yours!
