March Wind


The March wind
so different from the
gentle, later,
spring breeze.

Pushes, and strong arms
it’s way out of winter.
There is a strength that’s needed
for this change.
   To blow away the snow,
      the leaves that have hung
         and refused to go.

This wind… it demands.
It refuses and is stubborn.
It makes a way for what is new.
Baptizing us with rain.

About Mary Herbert

I am a gentle listener, a woman of few words. My journey through life has been a spiritual one, as well as a physical one. My daughter, Katie, and I thought it would be interesting to combine some of our giftings/talents in a blog and see what happens. Let us know what you think!

  1. I love the image of the March winds “strong arming” from winter into spring! I had never thought of it that way, but now it seems the best analogy
