A Whisper on the Wind

I was a gentle whisper upon the wind

That swept over the green valleys

I climbed the height of the highest mountain

And murmured softly as I descended the slopes

I picked up speed and started moving swiftly

Over the plateau and the sun swept plains

I picked up speed and started to howl

Whistling around corners and pushing gust after gust

 Bending the trees till they touched the earth

I reached the open water and the lapping waves became huge swells

Higher and higher went the waves until the white caps hit the shore

I took the rain and pelted it against the earth

 Harder and harder as if in an angry rage

Then I blew my self out on the open ocean waves

Exhausted, I once again became a whisper on the wind

    wow, one of your BEST I just happened to come upon here. I know you love rhyme, but you can really let go with free verse, dearie. A big fave on this one, and I saved all your comments to me for last. I read them and now it is nearly 1 a.m. So sorry I never have time to read more than a few of your poems, Phylis. thanks for those comments and it's fun to read what you have to say about you life with them . LUv, Andrea
