Lady in the Wind

Spread the love

This is how I picture the wind;
roguish,
blowing across lush fields, into the dark catacombs
of bosom— eavesdropping
where thoughts soft-spoken are buried.
Surrounded by pandemonium
I observe its prowess closely; is this what it means to be vigilant?
If so, teach me.

    The wind as eavesdropper – I love it! ‘Surrounded by pandemonium’ – so truthful: is the pandemonium within the wind, or within our hearts?
