I Just Want to Listen to the Wind

This poem came after several hard days, long days at work. I just needed nature and no man-made stimulation. Luckily, the wind blew all night. Laying awake with that bit of moon light and the wind, was good medicine. Enjoy the poem.

I Just Want to Listen to the Wind

I Just Want to Listen to the Wind

No news of the world of people
or music or voices or noise
only the voice of the wind,
the whistle and gust,
the sound of last autumn leaves
on a ride
a few wild raindrops
ripping by with the leaves.

There is a bit of moonlight
arching between shale clouds
and bending trees.
All is movement.
Progress is not a climb
but a circle,
the wind that returns
every fall
to hurry the leaves
past the moon.

I just want to listen to the wind
that circle
and mark time in nature’s way.
