i am still…safe

tapping
rapping
rustling outside my window.
winds of today
becoming yesterday
suddenly
I’m in tomorrow.

soft is the hum
gentle
forceful shift
strong
carrying a chill
onward
forward.
always onward.

out of fear
ran the sun
from the winds of change
hiding, cowering, waiting
another day

burning
yearning
warring against
frost
threatening to freeze solid
burning ball of fire

suffering through
flames –
sheds light, casts shadows
illuminating darkness

fear does his worst
convincing, persuasive
fleeting victory remains his reward

hoping
groping
searching through darkness
not lost, still remembered
i am still
safe
