A dark wind is howling tonight
coming from around the world
from lands of fire and ice
from wild and blazing places
the wind now sweeping
my words from the page
freezing my fingers at the keys
and I'm frightened
that words are no longer enough
thinking useless
old creeds I once believed
gone to ash and in the end
maybe all that matters is this:
one sparrow, sheltered
in a pine tree's fragile arms.
