The East Wind

The East Wind

The east wind blew upon me!

Its breeze gentle yet firm.

The East wind blew,

And it took away everything with it

It stole everything from me

I was left penniless, opinion less, defenceless

And,

It left me however, with a freedom and quietness

A freedom so Vast and wide that nothing could ever contain it

A freedom so few desired

Quietness so tranquil

Quietness in total equanimity with all that is

Quietness everyone rebelled against

Standing there,

It was as if I was born again

It took everything with it

And left me Here, at peace

The East wind still blew about

Now, no longer so dangerous

The East Wind is all the Grace we need!
