a south wind…

The wind is out of the south today

At 13

I checked

because it delighted me to no end

I could have walked and listened

For ages

It’s as though,


More than a million wings

That I cannot see

Are fluttering in sweet abandon

So that right


I can feel each and every one of them

How lovely is that

Already I have seen enough beauty

To carry me through this day

And well into tomorrow

But now,

There are children waiting

For me

And for stories

Perhaps I will tell them the one

About you

And how you inspired butterflies

To fill the air

And sent it as a south wind

To find me

And deliver a tender kiss…
