The Storm

The winds of time blow through the mind Rustling the thoughts within Thoughts which will be hard to find When the storm begins A silent storm with winds of despair Which leaves only a blur All that's left is a vacant stare The thoughts now fail to stir The winds of time blew through the mind And things now take a new form The breeze that blew seemed so unkind For now I, am the 'I' of the storm - 12-4-18 The I of the Storm Contest Sponsor: Maureen McGreavy

Moments certainly can create chaos within, if allowed to linger for such a long time. When calm caresses corners of the mind, it is a wonderful feeling indeed. This is so beautifully expressed, holding such meaning, such depth. Congratulations Joseph, on this win. ~ Brandy

What a clever approach to a storm that is brewing inside you, Joseph. You have excellent cadence in this quatrain and that last verse is especially powerful. Sending wishes for a win your way! Hugs, carolyn
