untitled (winds and Whitman)

outside
winds rattle in their Song

glory to themselves
basking in their chill, their roar,
their natural state
of movement —

We- the page- the vessel
the form that gives
the winds their form
as they move

rattle, dance,
their self-assured
Songs of them-selves.

oh wind,
you fearsome friend,
always with the
troubling advice:
“move, keep moving”

  1. Very wild and Walt–I love the sense of freedom and openness, with just that sobering awareness at the end that life is not a game, but something larger than ourselves which we must always grapple with. Thanks for sharing with dVerse, Jody.
