The Freezing Wind | Haiku | – Short Poem No. 81

The freezing wind howled,
whispered secrets in my ear,
’til its breathe ran out.

In the dead of night,
as it scraped across pine crowns,
the wind was alone.

With none to protect
from the dead sky’s wintry frost,
the winds heart froze, too.

As my heart froze, too,
“Please see that it’s not my fault,”
the freezing wind howled.
