Feel The Wind

1970's ?

I opened the window
And the breeze flew in
Open... free... wind...

Around my neck
Then all through my hair
It blew... it blew...

I closed my eyes
To breathe it in
So clear it was to me

I leaned back my head
And shook my hair
And let it flow through me

Leaning up and looking out
The wind washed at my eyes
Cooling them with tears

I looked about the yard below
The ground full of junk
The unkept paint
The broken toys
The fence.

I then very slowly
Closed the window
And pulled the blinds.
