The Wind

Wind, under the influence of parallel time
heeds my thoughts with more than
mere convenience

Assuming ripple-effect, machinations
in my mind travel centuries, backwards
and forward, mapping evolution, my
evolution, avoiding inevitable extinction

Sometimes gently, other times galloping
in flames, wind renews tides and
tumbles with the sun

Carries the sweet call of the Loon to my
thirsty soul and howls in madness
when I'm afraid

Beneath the day I have not seen
the wind knows why

I came this way

    Expresses a subjective, personal point of view. First-person point of view expresses the writer's personal feelings and experiences directly to the reader using these pronouns: I, me, my, mine; we, our, us. The first person creates a sense of intimacy between the reader and writer because it expresses a subjective point of view. Thanx for the brilliant title of your poem. The Wind is a 1928 American dramatic silent film directed by Victor Sjöström. Thnx again for ur kind visit.

    A new piece from Jimbo!!! YES!!! A reason for everything in our lives. They don't call it the "Winds of Change" for nothing. Awesome job!
