Within the Breeze

She stands there within the breeze of new heights Lasting as long as the wind doesn’t blow Her cloak moves with the waves of each delight Her vision reflects off the pond she sights Her outfit moves along with what she knows She stands there within the breeze of new heights She pleads that the stiff wind would lose its might Her heart never did show what was below Her cloak moves with the waves of each delight Such a need is spawned by her gradual light It’s not what is reaped but by what she sows She stands there within the breeze of new heights Alarmed at the speed at which the wind frights She doesn’t shower with the awe of crows Her cloak moves with the waves of each delight The wind whips through her body just so right The path she stands on puts her in the show She stands there within the breeze of new heights Her cloak moves with the waves of each delight

    I loved that last line, how her cloak moves with the waves of each delight. This is a visual poem and flows like a breeze.
