In conversation with the Wind

Oh gentle wind, blow softly thru my chestnut hair
But leave no trace
That you were there.

Don’t roar with force or hold me back
For raging winds if you attack
I’ll hold my ground I’ll stand and stare
So whip and lash my chestnut hair

You know I’m right,You’ve seen me fight,
You’ve seen me stand against your might
But now the time for fighting’s done
One more attack and I’ll be gone
No longer will you rip and tear
And whip right through my chestnut hair

So stop your games
Be kind and calm
I do not mean you any harm

Oh gentle wind I’ve braved it all
The storms of winter and the fall
And now I stand with you alone
And as I talk, wind gently moans….

“I promise I will compromise
If you will see that I am wise
I do not come here in disguise

For I am wind I have the power
To lift you up to knock you over
To rip and roar and fly and tear
And whip right through your chestnut hair

Its true I know
That I can blow
More powerful than you would know
But I am wind, its what I do,
I do not mean to trouble you,

I blow with force,
I blow with ease
I help the leaves fall from the trees

But you know me
I play with you
Its in these games that you get through

The times when you are racked with sorrow
Fearing what will be tomorrow
I come to you and rip and tear
And blow right through your chestnut hair

You face me out
You stand and shout
Forget what you were sad about”

Oh gentle wind I did not know
That you had come to know me so
And in these times, well you are right
You pull me back and make me fight

You whip me round
You stand your ground
But always I am safe and sound

Oh gentle wind then if you care,
Blow softly through my chestnut hair
And let me know
That you are there.

  4. This is in touch with the flow of the Great Mystery - you describe yourself as a lovable nutcase - I don't think you're nutty, I think you're a shaman. - Barefoot Doctor.

  5. Ju, at one with mother nature. So elegantly and beautifully written. - A proud cuz....x
