Hi, I would love some comments on the overall "poetry" of this piece. Does it inspire emotion?

PROMPT: WILD

2

wild anticipation

haunted these bones

shattered them like crystal when the time came

to get up and run

to feel the wind in my hair

those fragile things are gone

replaced by air and mist

and the rain has adorned this scalp for centuries

it seems

my crown

my gossamer triumph

come and clean the air so I can breathe with exultion

with the dew speckled grass  

turning the world beneath my bare feet
