I don’t know if it was because the wind changed

I don’t know if it was because the wind changed

I don’t know if it was because the wind changed
Or the day,
Or the sun.
But I know that something changed
That hour,
That sun.
It was the slightest change, easily missed,
But I felt it nonetheless.

It’s the kind of change that’s over in a heartbeat,
That you feel nonetheless.
And leaves you feeling you’ve been struck,
That something has reached the depths of you.
And then in an instant it’s over,
The wind changes course,
And you wonder if it happened at all.
