The Wind’s Advice; Poetry By Keitha B Cole – Art By Darren Blum


When love tries,

Failing to reach your ears,

But, wrenching your heart with every word,


That your time is yours and what you make of it

That without wings you cannot fly off this hill.

That some just know what they need to fulfill

And some see it clearer

By falling to the bottom

And looking up.
