windbeat words from tom

i start to think about you
and the wind starts blowing.
a clear case
of cause and effect.
and a
shudder-y
scare-y
joyfull-y
shiver-y
breeze hits my my eyes and nose.
my fears and hopes
for us.
how it blows
and why it knows
and what it shows
is a secret for me keep and hide
with a swallowed lumpy tear
and a reassuring smile.
