The Wind Grows Colder

The wind grows colder
Winter chills
And on this first  night

I seek You
As I always have
Wondering

With my heart and soul
So weary
Of the questioning

Sometimes loud
Sometimes in silence
I just pray

The wind grows colder
Winter chills
Awaiting Your word

Still I pray
What more can be done
I know not

I who have followed
Who believes
Is my faith not true?

Your response
In the deep nothing
Is silence

The wind grows colder
Winter chills
And so does my soul

Playing around, mixing the 5/3/5 and the 3/5/3 versions of the La Lune poetry form.

  1. The lune as a prayer, an invocation – that’s something a little different from what others have written, and therefore valuable as a note to the flexibility of the form. Also, an interesting mix of lune variations in this progression.

    • I had written a Lune before and found it a little easy. This was a little more work combining the variations and still keep a steady flow.

      Hmm, there’s a Kelly and a Collom… perhaps a Rai Lune? 😀

  2. I seek You
    As I always have
    Wondering

    With my heart and soul
    So weary
    Of the questioning….love how the rhythm of these two play together….my fav though is the wind grows colder one as i think it really embodies the form and is so emotive…
