3.25.10 – 1.22

vacant thoughts flood her
with such storm, such emptiness.
it makes her so light

she is whisked away
by a wind so fervent, it
casually slips

into her loose grasp
until its fluidity
coaxes it shyly

from her fingertips.
whimsically suspended from
the clouds, she whispers

desperately “please
set me down from this high place.
i can’t see the ground,”

yet, unwittingly,
the impatient wind renders
her words unheeded.

  1. What I like here is the heavy use of a single element: Air.

    From a Pagan perspective, air symbolizes breath, a necessary component of life. It’s also an element with a primarily male gender association, which means one could associate this uplifting wind with love, marriage, or childbirth.

    I could jump in and explore this for hours. What a lovely gift you’ve given us 🙂

  2. Amazing how each lovely haiku flows into the next to make a powerful poem. Thanks for sharing this. My favorite part is this – the impatient wind renders
    her words unheeded.
