Sonnet for Winds of Change


Cross cirrus sky swift brush strokes paint mares' tails
Tree tops are in restless susurration,
While cumbrous clouds traverse in vapour trails
Mead grass is fanned in wild undulation

Lake face whipped to agitated motion
Plumes roughed, wildfowl voyage with discretion
Gulls in-land tell of wild storms on ocean
All braced to face nature's bare aggression

When young I chose such rugged  medium
Deplored the concept then of perfect peace
Such state suggested endless tedium
Hazard  preferred to slow drawn out release 

While I now sometimes seek respite from strife
I yet love winds that change, give breath to life
