Face the Wind

Winds are blowing off Elliot Bay,

rain in sheets on the hills;

old Seattle waking up to black coffee

and the sound of another storm.

I’m heading out

to find an egg in this town,

maybe some bacon and bread.

Gusts pound off the buildings

challenging their insult;

sea birds hunker down

tucked into their wings.

What’s born on the ocean

has time on its side

but I’ve a few pennies of kindness

and a dollar or two of ambition.

It’s time to face the wind.
