Wind Walking

I do go about at night
Walking on the wind
Gliding past the earthly rest
Chained to rock and limb

It is I and only I
Who rides the waves unseen
Stretched out arms control the flow
Of currents over me

Flying ultra silent planes
Helps me see below
To gain a better focused look
And know the knowing knows

For bound to terra firma should
Make me feel at peace
But sailing arms and open sky
Help me know I'm free

There I stand above the clouds
Supported by the wind
Weightless, want-less spirit
In touch with all within

One day when this body goes
I'll disperse among the sky
But for now I must dream
The thrill for me to fly

The early morning comes too soon
I must bring her down
Tomorrow is another day
For me to fly around

Poem of the Day

poet Wilfred Owen

All sounds have been as music to my listening:
Pacific lamentations of slow bells,
The crunch of boots on blue snow rosy-glistening,
Shuffle of autumn leaves; and all farewells:
