A Time For Change

bewildered, I stared into space
eyes unseeing
wind twirling unruly hair
tangling feelings
and thoughts of a better

how things changed in such a short time
when still green leaves fell off trees
and fertile ground was suddenly parched
rain turned red as blood
and the sun was cold

with hands taut on my aching head
and fear running down my cheeks
I held my alarmed heart in these tired hands
and tenderly caressed it with fingers
as light as a feather
