Ode to the Wind

Spread the love

Lo! Glorious wind, she blows
Spreading jubilation among the souls.
The wind of promise and repose;
Of Nature exhibiting a vital role.

The wind blows past her ruffled hair;
At time of dusk she looks up and stares.
The wind is gentle as if singing a prayer;
Soothing the burn of her rushing tears.

Gentle whispers of the wind;
With Nature has a perfect blend.

Hear the wind rustling the leaves;
Calming the senses when no one believes.
The wind tapping against the window;
Humming along the song of willow.

    The close is especially strong here, Sanaa–the wind tapping and humming–you definitely tap into the different sides of the wind here. Thanks for playing along. k.

    “..as if a prayer..”—ah, yes.. the wind is clearly like that, Sanaa. I like that you wrote about the wind as it is my favourite element. I always find connection with the wind as the sound it produce is like a bird’s prayer to my ears—humming psalms beyond sacramental faith. Thanks for the poem! This is bookmark worthy.

    It’s always soothing to look at the wind. It either soothes or expresses our emotions with its movement. In some way, I guess it also wipes tears.
