SPIRIT OF THE WIND

On fierce
stormy nights I await him
with impatience, fevered longing,
for I know
he will someday come.


Tonight
these bitter Northern Winds
are full of his voice
calling me.
So I scramble to the summit
of wind-battered moorland hill,
where impossible dreams reactivate
long abandoned desires.
Rising from this tomb of flesh
to glide on torrents of air,
I dance amongst falling autumn leaves.
And I find him
hovering here,
a whirlwind of Stardust
in vague human form.
He offers an oxygen 'high',
so I breathe him
deep into avid lungs,
where he becomes the lover
of a restless, untamed Spirit.

Together
we smash through the boundary
of Earthly time,
spanning the entire planet
in an instant;
oxygenating the dying parts
to bring new life
and impartial healing
to all beings.
In this Airy Dimension,
We are,
Have been,
Will be,
Are perfected.

Relentless Storm,
rage on.
Wrench apart these shackles
and take this virginal mortality,
for I want to stay
forever in your eye.

  3. I don't enjoy the wind very much but this writing I do.

    The alliteration of "hovering here" and the construct of tenses in

    "We are,
    Have been,
    Will be,
    Are perfected."

    are "wish I had written that" material. Oh, and don't forget the metaphor of staying in the eye of the storm!

    Very nice Ygraine.
