Wind Song, With Birds

The wind
howled ice-cold, clear-sky

and awoke the moon,
who gazed, heavy-lidded,
at the stars around her

Leaves and dust
danced sambas and pirouetted
along the desert's river,

who was shivering uncontrollably
while midnight birds
struggled to fly upstream

against the manic,
stinging, musical currents
of turbulence and wonder

    I am so, so grateful for all your awesome comments. I must admit, out of the hundreds, if not thousands of poems I've written over the last few years, this one really, really pleases me deeply, as, apparently, it does all of you. Thanks to all of you so very much!
