Something About the Wind by Sidney Hall, Jr.

There's something about the wind coming off
the ocean, the waves washing the rocks

that makes a person who is quickly annoyed
by cigarette smoke and men
putting nails into roofs

forgetful and unconcerned.

If you are easily disturbed
you need to get an ocean.

  1. The ocean paints
    warmth and beauty
    in a cold heart.

  2. Very nice, Distracted.

    Wishing you waves of joy and relaxation this holiday season and all year long.

  3. Oh, I could use me an ocean right now :-).

  4. So, so true. I moved to a house 3 blocks from the bay this past July and I couldn't agree with you more! Love the poems you post.
