As the wind blows

Robin's Nest

An ancient breeze blows through the trees,

Shaking yellow dust off limbs that sway in motion.

The air is filled with tiny spores of Spring,

Journeys carried in gust beyond our horizons.

As Winters death releases her cold grip,

Life pulls itself out of a deep slumber.

We warm slowly under an April Sun,

Preparing for the ravages of a Summer heat.

Colors reappear to sway our hearts towards love,

Robins blue nestled against woven stems and twigs.

Purple blossoms rising in a feast of green,

Enticing Bees to carry heavy freights of gold.

Hues of red fill crevices abandon by the frost,

These cracks of life emerge indifferent to the day.

As the wind blows, birth reigns over death,

For another year, another time, in this place.

An original composition by the author of Ends and Beginnings







About ends and beginnings blog

I am a frustrated writer and poet waiting to be discovered. A stand-up philosopher performing on a street corner near you. A Christian with questions but I don’t want to hear your answers. A Buddhist with a bumper sticker on my truck to prove it. A collector of quotes. A grower of lettuce. The Patron Saint of earthworms who name their children after me. A cyclist whose big ass strains the seams of his Lycra bibs. I am American by birth, Southern by the grace of God. My goal in life is to leave an imprint on the lives of the people I love not a footprint on the earth. I am a son, a husband, a father composed of 65%-Oxygen, 18%-Carbon, 10%-Hydrogen, 3%-Nitrogen, 3%-Diet Coke and 1%-Oreo.

    We have the wind,
    It carries leaves.
    For we are below you
    and go the other way!
