Winds Over the City

   and one hundred thousand 
individuals arise,
   face the sun 
and hurry to their respective 
           work environments
Their lives are measured in 
                                 small spoonfuls
  This morning winds 
                        caress the city
cooling down the dwellers there
   We do not care 
that our eyes have been
      exposed to the light 
Those windows of our souls 
        see the reality 
        we face 
        The fierce winds are blosing 
    Leave sorrows to others
Feel the rawness of the day
in the marrow of your bones 
I am sure peace will come
   to you 
if you hold fast 
to your commitments

    I love your title and I love this poem Matthew. It transports the mind into a peaceful realm. Well written and it does what I read poetry for, to transport me. Mahalo

    Yes, peace comes when one holds to those right commitments and do what is right..Enjoyed reading this afternoon...Your comments were uplifting..The poem is about a happening from my father's childhood that I hope people see as funny...Sara
