Wind Starter

unrelenting winds cause
their bodies to lean
summoning circles of movement

they sway in harmony
and participate
in each spontaneous dance

gazing, I wonder
as each bowing face
is kissed by the sun

which way does this wind blow
and whence it came
a swirling mystery

joining the celebration
I stand among them
skin feeling what eyes cannot see

only nature unfolds
each sacred suggestion
of where it hails

and the eternal secret
that will reveal
who ordered this command

Darlene...shame on me...I cursed the wind yesterday when it took my table, umbrella and chairs crashing into the new grass just planted. breaking the unbrella post....

then I come and read this beautiful picture of God's wind, and I say forgive me.

You are still our beautiful thinker, and you tons.

Darlene - lovely poem! And the pic is so pretty.

I bet you're getting a lot done. If I could just stay off of the computer I might too.

Always thinking of you & your family. God bless.

You always blow me away, (is that a pun of sorts?) with your poetry. Beautiful symmetry and stance in it. You had me with the first line.
