Wordle Wind

Try to bend my way with whatever
wind is passing through these parts,
straightening my sails while keeping
an eye on the water line.

Wasn’t always the case. Limited
by small grain of understanding,
had to completely switch lanes
to sound of soughing exasperation.

Finally learned to look east, toward
rising sun. To remember that each
morning is a new beginning and I
will find whatever I need within it.

  1. A lovely positive way to begin my Sunday.

    Somehow this reminds me of a poem that should have been included in “Chocolate” by Joanne Harris … the wind that calls and brings change …. loved it.

    Every morning gives us a second chance. Far better to look forward, than back on safe stagnation.

    “to look toward the rising sun”. There is a good deal more here than a simple slice of a morning sail 🙂 lovely

    Soughing is a new word to me – and a brilliant one..maybe once we learn to take a deep breath and try not to try too hard days become better…i hope


  6. The last stanza says it all.


  7. Sancho Panza says:

    Love a wind that fills my sails.


  8. claudia says:

    sometimes we need to switch lanes to get an understanding about the paths of the wind and learning those valuable lessons…. i try to find those new beginnings each morning as well…starting anew…


  9. brian miller says:

    each day is new…and within it…there is enough to sustain us…without looking beyond or before…..there is a nice wisdom in this….


  10. Mary says:

    Yes, each morning (and day) finds its own meaning somehow. Each a way to begin again, to find the way….

    Wonderful piece. Well written!


  12. magicalmysticalteacher says:

    I really like the idea of acceptance that comes across at the end: knowing that you will find whatever you need (not necessarily what you want, but what you need) with each rising sun;

    Whirl for August 10th
