To The Wind…

September 11, 2012

To the wind:

We’ve always been such good friends

-you and I.

Even when you blow
all the napkins off my table
or very unattractively attempt to tousle my hair,
even when you seem to find SUCH amusement
in pushing my fledgling kite right… into the ground,
I can’t help but consider you an ally.

The unseen in motion-
motion and sensation-
bearing change,
while maintaining nature.
Our aims remain
in opposition, the same,
and for all who blame,
a balance beriddles.
We shoulder whatever shame,
settles on our name,
and
refer, silently,
to the Sky.

Ever yours,

-a hopeful pessimist.

Restore to me the joy of Your salvation, and uphold me with a willing spirit.” -Psalm 51:12
