Wild Is The Wind

Whistling across
Illuminating ruffle
Lightening fast
Devastating at times

Influential flurry
Storms away

Tearing silence
Hollow gust
Ever blowing

When it’s mad
It stops for none
Nor you, nor me
Divulges reality

Written for: Acrostic Only


  1. Oh my, Tan .. this is good! The last line -- well I can see the wind whipping away at our illusions, revealing our realities, but it seems not to fit in --- so enlighten me.

    My friend, how could you disappoint me, it's not possible.

  2. Amias, happy that you asked.
    There is a story behind the last line. I would write sometime, and relate to this Acrostic. I have it here, right in my mind.
    Anyways, will tell you...

    Here, the poet is afraid of the Wind! S/he is afraid that the wind might now care to stop - neither for YOU, nor for ME and blow away our emotions, our secrets, our thoughts, revealing all at once!!

    Hope this explains. Please let me know, otherwise :)
