The Wicked Wind

The wicked wind
blows harsh tonight
shattering my windows
one and all,
the scarecrow
in the garden reduced
to minute particles
of blowing debris.

The wicked wind
has a bounty tonight
nothing shall escape
from it's wrath,
the smiling daffodils
pulled by their roots
left dying on the surface
of destruction.

The wicked wind
whispers to me tonight
relaying a message
I failed to recall
the nightmares that tango
with your mind
were once just a whisper
of breeze in time.

Fabulous writing, Gloria. Those wicked winds can sure wreak havoc, can't they? Very well expressed.

Winds can be wicked my dear, but remember, it's the wind that sets the white dandelion free....Remembering blowing those as kids?  Heck, I still do sometimes....Makes me think.  I think I'll do a poem on that!  Thanks for the inspiration girl!  LOL  I'll dedicate it to you.  Blow winds blow!
