Here is the Wind
here is the wind
rising from nothing
no birthplace or home
as it gathers its breath
the world and I
and it pushes down
from the mountain top
through canyons and valleys
sounding its warning
cry out—I say
tell me where you go
I see trees fall
and waters part
still it rushes on
with a secret
until the wind and I
join and rising

Pam, This piece is stunning. As I finished reading it, I was stripped of all thoughts for few moments,almost blank.ReplyDelete
Thanks for a prompt that directs within.
Here is my take on the prompt, I think Mr. Linky is giving some problems.
Thank you Pam, for the nice prompt. It was fun to work with.ReplyDelete
I like your poem, searching for the wind. It reminds me of two verses:
John 3:8--"The wind blows wherever it pleases. You hear its sound, but you cannot tell where it comes from or where it is going. So it is..."
Ecclesiastes 1:6--"The wind blows to the south and turns to the north; round and round it goes, ever returning on its course."

I don't know what is going on with inlinkz. It is probably me, but I can't find the problem. I put the same script in three times and it finally worked and I don't know why. I will be working to prevent this in the future. Again, I am sorry.ReplyDelete
What a delightful prompt! Thanks for the inspiration! Here's My Elemental Muse (Limerick).ReplyDelete
This is seriously weird! I didn't realize that the next prompt is "muse" until after I'd written and posted My Elemental Muse limerick.ReplyDelete
