Winds Of Change

Spread the love


Winds of change do beckon – recall
As seasons change from spring to fall.
Let them linger through rains of fate;
The voice of reason’s a limited trait.
Change inevitable – change unknown;
Whatever was veiled will soon be shown.
A wisp of beauty all on its own.
Be calm in frenzy Β and smile in pain;
Remember in life – be open to change.

Winds of change do reckon – recall
Declare that winter is best of all.
The season full of hardship – trouble
Reminds that life’s a perfect puzzle.
People so lost in solemn and strange;
Remember in life – be open to change.

  1. Oh! what a great poetic form and how well you did it. And the message in the form about changes – remember in life be open to change. Excellent message. Thank you for writing to the prompt and for submitting.

  2. You know it was in some of the hardest seasons of my life that we created some of the best memories. And what is hidden will be made known for sure. Change is always in the air.

    And thank you for the very warm comment over at PU. Pleasure knowing you as well Sanaa.

    1. Hello X,

      Thanks for stopping by, so glad you liked it πŸ˜€
      Highly appreciated, have a great week ahead.

  3. Good use of the makes a good singalong. Each season has its high points but to me summer is all about full blooms, delicious scents, lazy days and living slow.

  4. A beautiful rondeau…very well written and enjoyable. All the seasons have their own, particular traits of change and beauty. Life itself is change and you point out a good lesson to heed…acceptance of that change.

  5. Lovely rondeau, one of my favorite forms. My initial reaction is to vehemently disagree that winter is best, as it is my least favorite of the seasons. In fact, I greatly dislike it. But your next line reminded me of the growth that I’ve experienced and the compassion I’ve learned as a result of my own hardships and you’ve shown me a value to winter that I hadn’t seen before. Very thoughtful and thought-provoking piece. Thanks. Peace, Linda

  6. This is something that has been floating through my mind…’be open to change’. I agree with you about winter…its hardships bring me strength and teach me so much…it is a season where I do some of my best thinking! Absolutely loved this poem!!

  7. Even more appreciation for this poem the second time around! I do think we have to adapt with / flow with change. And I like the idea as well that whatever is veiled will eventually be seen!

  8. Many crave for an unchanging world where they are comfortable but the only certain thing in life and the world around us is change. Of course this is sad but we must be prepared and accept it part of life and constantly move on. A beautiful poem Sanaa.
