Deceitful Wind - Poem

Deceitful Wind
By Mary Nida Smith

This morning the wind is visiting
Banging against the house
Like a mad uncontrollable beast
Trying to frighten me
To rattle and shake my nerves
As it circles from different directions
The bully wind will lullaby with low notes
Appearing to calm me into thinking its leaving
For a moment, I feel a calmness and peace
Suddenly, shaken by the howls of wolves
Taking runs, like the big bad wolf
Trying to puff and blow my house in
To remove me to a hidden place
Where the strong, deceitful, wind hides
Claiming me for its own.
