And I have heard the old wind calling…

From river’s bed he came,

Heard him reach deserted beach,

Where on those sands

He carved my name.

And I have heard the words sink deep,

As if each grain of sand gave way…

A falling into nothingness,

Where earth would sweep away.

And I have seen the sounds of him,

Move like a hand upon the reeds…

A phantom spirit passing there…

Over that ground of weeds.

And I have watched him as he passed

Into the avenue…

His whispers placed from blade… to shade…

Where once a quiet grew.

And I have known the ways of him,

Have followed where he led…

’til dust to dust, the steps of us,

On river roads that bled.

And I have closed my eyes to feel…

His rush upon my skin…

A cold embrace of emptiness,

’til silence

Breathed us in.

About Jenny Reyneke Art

My earliest memories are of pens, paper, paint, pastels and poetry. They delight me still.
