The only sounds I hear, are the wind's whispers in my ear

Silently, I sat by, To listen to the sounds of the world, Of all the voices that touched me most, Were those caught in the angelic wind, For all things have a voice, And the voice for all things speaks through the wind, So, silently I sat and listened. With the salty taste of a tear As it touched my upper lip, A smile appeared. All the while the wind kept blowing, Secret after secret, revealing to me, If only I could comprehend its wisdom. But that is half the allure, Happy I am just to hear it blow, And acknowledge its influence over my spirit. The wind has taught me many things, Though, I cannot speak for the wind, Instead, let it speak for me.

Loved, "A Smile Appeared". The smile is the acknowledging of the presence of wisdom. You must be in the presence of the unknown to know; and when you know, you realize you are everywhere. Bless you White Wolf, for sharing your poetry. Bill Baker

This went straight to my FAVs list this morning. I have no idea how I missed it earlier. We all have a voice, and I am grateful that you have mastered yours in such a beautiful way, it appears as if your poem was effortless.
