Courting the Wind



NaPoWriMo Day 3, 2020

Words whisper at inner ear,
like wind wandering
through tall grasses.

Must lean in, become
stilled, or miss
their meaning
and lose my way.

Know from past
encounters, that most
wild things will cautiously
come closer.

For no other
than simple

And so it begins.
Breathe in deeply,
hold, and then softly

    Sensitive and beautiful! Perfect advice for these scary times: “Breathe in deeply, hold, and then softly exhale.”

    Ahhhh, I wrote a poem about inner listening today too. In fact two poems. It is a time for listening, for certain. I love the wild things creeping closer.
