Woman in the Wind

I drift about our empty home
In the silence absence drew.
Nightly room to room I roam
Without hope I call to you.

In search of our love time lost
I am struck with a forlorn will.
It is the beginnings of the winter frost
That quell the flame to chill.

A draught drawn out surrendered
Which beckons me anew.
With the pathway clearly rendered
Compelled, I must pursue.

A window raps a stutter
And gifts safe passage through.
The drapes billow out and flutter
Creating an outline of you.

A woman in the wind it seems
With the caresses of the air.
Now all I have are waking dreams
Of a woman never there.

  1. Hi. Thanks for sharing such a well penned poem. Particularly liked the second line of verse 1. There are so many great lines as in verse 3 lines 1 and 2. Love the developing imagery throughout the poem. Happy Writing, Have a wonderful day. Goff.

  2. Although the writing style is nicely unique, this poem reminds me quite a bit of Emily Dickinson.

  3. Beautiful work.

  4. Woah! This is so beautiful and eerily calm. Loved it. Especially the last stanza.

  5. Thank you all so much for reading. I wasn’t aware this had been published, hence the delay in my thanks. Thanks also to luna for publishing.
