Listen To The Wind

by Barbara MacDonald (writer), CANADA , January 27, 2013

Thought is the wind, knowledge the sail, and mankind the vessel. Augustus

I still get wildly enthusiastic about little things... I play with leaves. I skip down the street and run against the wind. Leo Buscaglia

Gathering of twinkling stars

Shining with perfection of love

Do you see it?

Reach up and touch it

With your fingertips

Blink and it shall

Fall caressing your soul...

A flower planted giving forth

Seeds which spring into life

Each petal telling it's own story

The fragrance intoxicating

One by one her petals fall

Sprouting into a new spring

Manifesting a new peace...

Step upon this river

Which is frozen now

Breath deeply inhaling

Conscious realization

You will find me there

Bathed in your heartbeats

Do you hear me?...

The wind carries my kisses

Upon your eyes they rest

The sun awakens shining down

Birds singing the last song

I sang into your heart's longing

In balance, my hands

Holding you safely upright...

Persevering years of knowledge

Attached with strings weaved

Through joy and sorrow

Unbroken consecrated commitment

Echoed within each breath pulsating

Given existence extinguished

Humbly gracing our everlasting truth...

your poetry makes me stop and think and take a sudden breath. My missus reckons that anybody who can make ME think has cleared a major hurdle.

BEAUTIFUL!! And my favorite, Barbara, "Seeds which spring into life" It reminds me that spring will soon be here, and I can begin the happy dance of germinating my vegetables sees again. :)

I wish you a wonderful year, Amiga!

Thank you Virginia, I am thinking this will be an amazing year...We had a bit of a winter storm last night so they closed the schools. I wanted to go out, but instead am making the Honey Pecan Tart I have been wanting...made me think of you while I was making the pie crust..:-) I always wish you the best that life can bring you my friend.

Well, so far, Amiga, 2012 ended with not such a great note. And 2013 has begun with a lot of questions and speculations. Sigh! But I must trust in God, and know that He will lead the way, according to his will. :)

Much love and BIG hugs....
