The Wandering

Wandering with the wind
Blowing me with the tall grasses I walk
Settling upon the blue asters
Resting my soul on a bench
Among the voices around me
Birds, frogs, geese
No money in sight or sound
Oppression part of no vocabulary
In woods or prairies
Just the joy of homemade applesauce
And herbs
Gathered in the wild
Nurturing life
Everywhere the wind lives

    Nature has no concern for our trivial concerns and when we let it, nature can blow those cares away. I really enjoyed this piece.

    A very intriguing poem... loved the wind. It adds a moving and almost echoing to the poem. Loved it.

    If we could all remember to take the time to just listen to the sights and sounds...the wind carries her voices with sweet melody...enjoyed this peaceful poem.
