Of unsettling winds.........poem

In the winds of autumn I find
much solace
where humankind fails me
yet even that fault is mine

I stand swaying as my soul finds
it's bearing
and my heart lay sleeping in
vaulted time

Even in the howling winds of
seasonal change
I find calm within it's depths such
eons unclaimed

If I could only write out lost feelings
let the pen be the guide
I'd find a way to be free once more
with no hurt left to hide

If I could only write out lost feelings

Amen preacher man!

Writing about our experiences and feelings in response to those experiences can really help. Lovely poem. At the moment we're being buffeted by strong spring winds!
