A Voice In The Wind

Far above a timbered valley -- High up on a mountain peak -- The beauty of the day surrounds me As I listen to the breezes speak. Serenity caresses my soul -- Gentle winds tune each leaf they touch -- Until a symphony is heard By senses not attuned to such. I question the source of this artistry. And, as resonant chords the winds pursue, Lyric breezes sing their songs And flood my mind with thoughts of you. So, I listen for a voice in the wind -- As I wait for your spirit to pass by. When I reach for a hand meant for me The spell is broken by a sigh.

    I see what you meant by how our poems seem to connect in the way they're written. My main focus when I write is to go straight from my head and then judge the result

    I think this might be the first of your I have read, John. Every syllable sings! The rhythm is excellent and the length is perfect - long enough to set up the theme, develop the thought, and end just right. Going in my fav's! Congratulations!

    It sounds like a mountain to here in British Columbia. You did a great job of capturing the experience.
