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.

  1. The wind can be so much, soothing or gentle, caressing or maiming.. a choice of using the zephyr’s breath, the ever present movement that’s filled with meaning… great choice.

    There is something quite magical in the the way the wind seems to talk to us, even warning or chastising us as we live our foolish lives.

    “..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.
