Wind - Poem by Laiakini Waqanisau

Leaves rustle
Sands swirl in the air
Sunlight moves from East
And Settles in the West
Light filters in motion through the wind
Evenings comes and behold a breeze
If only it could stay this way
Until the next stars sprinkles types of motion
In the air to make wind
A quarter moon in the sky
To show time is moving
2014 is flying by
To fast like the wind
God is good
To show how much joy it is to create
And see eternity in flow
Like the wind


Poet's Notes about The Poem

I wrote this poem whilst in North Sinai, a place full of variations of wind patterns. Sometimes the air is filled with red dust storms, other times its really calm. Wind in this geographic area presents a fascinating phenomenon, whereas it can be calm on day and the next, tar sealed roads are buried under sand dunes. Winds in this region also bring in the different seasons and farmers are most grateful for the rain and moisture that it brings in winter and in early spring. I was inspired to write this poem by seeing how influential wind patterns are in this desert environment and dedicate it to the Bedouins who observe this windy domain as their own.
