There’s a song on the breath of the wind
I pause to listen, hand cupped
around my ears to guide those vibrations.
It is the sweet voice of the season, stirring life
Into those frozen bodies, those who waited,
more or less patiently, for this voice to rouse them.
She laughs as she whispers silkily across my skin,
tangling hair and spirit as she goes along.
She speaks of growth, of warmth, a promise
of new beginnings. She speaks life
into those beings who have been waiting
for just such a day as this, a day with a song
on the breath of the wind.
