THE WIND

Over and over we have touched
Every created thing on this earth.
Some moments –
As gentle as goose down.
Other times we shriek
As if we have a score to settle.
But we do not.
We have no evil intent.

Often we lull you
To sleep with our breeze,
Yet we will occasionally
Awaken you
In the middle of the night
As we rattle the house
With the icy blasts of winter.

We are calm,
We are wild,
We are part of your life.
Embrace us, for we embrace you.

We are THE WIND.
