Windwalker

I
knew a Tiger
who swam with dolphins
along the razor’s edge

and
meditated with a yellow bird
under his honey’s tree
in a west coast garden.

A
rare breed
from an indigenous
creed.

His
poetic wisdom
written with
zen.

He
sung his songs
in syllables:
5-7-5 and 5-7-5-7-7.

His
beloved’s last kiss
left him fragrant roses
when she crossed over.

Where
did our
Windwalker
go?

Lava
beads, sky lanterns,
and a beautiful
rainbow.

Is
he crying with Coyotes
to the moon or on
heaven’s Windswept Shore?

I
knew a Tiger
who walked
with the wind.

How did I miss this fine POTD. What great descriptions of a crying soul yearning for the one lost. My heart bleeds through my eyes. You have the talent it takes to be a top performer here and I look forward to reading more of your work. Have a great day.

I am truly honored and blessed to have the privilege of having my poetry selected as Poem of the Day. Thank you all for your kind comments and warm welcoming. This poem is dedicated to my friend, Tiger. He is a wonderful poet and mentor who writes beautiful haiku and micropoetry. Tiger’s precious wife Laura lost her battle with cancer a year ago. He has been away from our Twitter Poetry Community mourning her for several months. We love him and miss him. #LoveLightPeace
