As the Wind Howls

(5) Words: | WIND | SPEAK | FREE | START | FIGHT |

As the wind howls on this grey day
Stray dogs wandering the empty streets
Sweets given free but still no takers
Acres of spaces starting to be vacant
Client, vacationers don’t come here anymore
Shore is not enough, fighting for survival
Dull and aged, they speak with no loyalty
Tea by the sea is still brilliant, whereas
As the wind howls on this grey day

  1. A Cinquain. How brave to rhyme so perfectly and tell a sad story of what is happening too often. If money is not in all pockets who can afford the luxuries of the seaside? You image fits perfectly. And all out success. – jk
