Winds of peace
Whispering at night
Singing with calmest voice
With lasting newness
Winds of storm
Blowing from dark skies
Bearing down once again
With coldness of heart
Winds of heart
Crossing west to east
Warming thoughts open doors
With attitude’s change
Winds of will
Stumbling from daily mistakes
With lessons to learn
Winds of change
Bringing smile to heart
Dancing with endless joy
With fresh perspective
