The winds

Stephen Chinnock

15 October 2020

The winds of the heart
blow mightily at times
steering us off course
until the calm comes again

Then we gather up
the remnants left
on the floor
of a previous life

Reconstruct a new version
creating a new reality
to carry us through
to a bright new day

The bricks and mortar
build new walls of security
holding us in
a new safe place

A space to celebrate
family and friends
comfortable again
in my own home!
