Ode to the Wind
Your gentle cool breath sweeps over me
as I lie upon the garden wall.
Trees sway to the sound
of your stirring symphony.
Faces lift to greet your touch,
and hear your murmured sigh.
Your sensuous caress upon my hair.
A thrill that fills all depths.
Element of ancient cultures,
with earth, water, and fire you dwell.
Harmony of grace and movement,
you arouse all with anticipation.
Your forces strong, and songs sweet.
A wild child, tamed by none.
