Wind's Calligraphy - Poem by Ben Gieske

Today I read
a wind’s calligraphy
as it picked a fragment up
swirling it around
with dips and suddenly plummeting down
rocketing up and all the way around
to the right and to the left
like a coryphee
it twirled
as if scrolling
its signature
in the air

    Wonderful poem Ben with a swirling of so much action that I went on the creative ride myself.
    'it twirled as if scrolling its signature in the air' really ended my joyous trip. Loved it! 10 Karin Anderson

    Beautiful and enchanting. It calls to mind the Navojo belief that the blowing of the wind reminds us that our ancestors lived and breathed before us and with us. (Report) Reply

    Rosetti once asked 'Who has seen the wind? '...I would answer her, 'My friend Ben has and he watched as it wrote of the magic of this day in calligraphy! ' 10!

    I was attracted to this by the title - and was not disappointed. I absolutely agree with Elysabeth. (Report) Reply
