The Wind - a Poem

My Freedom

Lies in the Wind

And the Sun.


The Wind gently

Wraps itself around

My body


And takes me

Through this suspicious world.


The Wind envelopes me

And protects me

From the anvil

Society tries to put on my

Shoulders.


The Sun breathes

It’s Life

On me


And I’m Free.


The Wind

Doesn’t accept everyone…

Only those

Who know

It’s there.

Love the last line my dear; that's how I feel about Mt. Rainier. Not everyone can speak to it and expect an answer. The key lies in appreciation for what is in front of you. Great poem, simplicity plus deep philosophy. My best to you on this Sunday as you prepare for another chapter in your life....love and peace always, Bill
