Soul Mates

Darn! The wind is back with a vengeance.
Its howling,
	making the trees and grasses become its instrument. 
Gusts to 40 mph they say; I believe it.

But the sky is so blue and the clouds are illuminated from within.
Today the wind is so strong that I can smell the pine scent from the mountains —
	from the mountains where his ashes swirl.

He lifts my hair and whirls it around my face, and in the scent on the wind
	I am awash with cleanness.
The tune he plays as he surrounds my body is one of memories, and greeting.

The wind slowly becomes more gentle;
	caressing now; touching me in a more loving way.
Exploring with long cool fingers, around, reaching under my clothing,
	becoming intimate.

Forfeiting his boldness, with a sigh he leaves on soft goodbyes.

Darn, the wind is gone.

    Oh my god this is really beautiful. Congratulations on your featured write. I'd said it's well deserved. I almost felt like you were dancing with the wind and some how the wind had come alive to reflect your memories. Sometimes I'd give anything for that reenactment for some love ones I have lost. Beautiful write.

    So sorry I ever missed this Judith. The wind can do magical things. You are caught in a strong, intimate moment of memory, and seem completely brought back to a different time. Congratulations on your excellent poetry being featured this week. It is an awesome write. Love, Shar
