Memories

Shoreline by Sarah Burvenich

I have as many memories

As grains of sand on the shore.

But the salty wind blows

And then they disappear.

Footprints here, a sandcastle there –

They’re all the same to me.

Without you here,

My day is cloudy like morning fog.

I can remember, yes,

But that is not the same as feeling.

I have as many memories

As grains of sand on the shore.

But those memories,

They are not the same as reality.

Gone

Wind by Autumn Mott
Picture By: Autumn Mott

It was like wind,

Here one day, gone the next.

If only it could be a trick in my mind,

Then you wouldn’t be gone.

It was like summer,

Ignorance was our crime.

But you know we’ll remember

No matter the time.

It was like a clock

Ticking down to the end.

We watched in shock

As you became one with the wind.

Autumn

Leaves by Tirza van Dijk

There’s no stopping you.

You’re a waging wind,

And a powerful chill.

We cannot stop this fall.

The leaves run as I walk,

They scurry and dance on the blacktop,

Until I’m silhouetted by

The colors of autumn.

Flags snap in the wind,

Declaring their indifference.

And it seems that, everywhere I look,

Harvest has come to plant the seeds of winter.

The Courage to Fly

The Courage to Fly by Ryan Jacques

We can stand against the wind,

Let it carry us to the end.

Stumbling, falling, twirling

We will let everything unwind:

And find the courage to fly.

We can land in obscurity,

And have each other for surety.

Uncertainty does not matter:

We’ll find the courage to fly.

Restless

Restless by Jan Erik

It pounds in my mind,

Like waves against cliffs.

It crosses every line,

Like water at a rift.

It comes and goes,

Like the wind and the tide.

It cries and laughs,

Like snapping wind.

Love is restless.
