The Wind Blows


The wind gently blows
Across the countryside
Stroking the tops of the tall grass
And the delicate petals of the wild orchids
Not enough to disturb the butterfly
Drinking deep the sweet nectar nature supplies

The wind carries on into the hedgerow
Leaving dandelion seeds entangled
On the sharp thorns of the bramble
The birds nestle deep within this fortress
Safe from predators

Onward the wind goes
Carrying the mushroom spores
To colonize another green pasture

Where the wind stops
No one knows
It's just a carrier of the cycle of life.

Amongst the flowers I
am alone with my pot of wine
drinking by myself; then lifting
my cup I asked the moon
to drink with me, its reflection
