You turn into the wind,
To feel her playful spirit embrace you, surround you, run through you.
You raise your chin as she caresses your face,
Sweeping light fingers through your hair,
Kissing your dry lips.
She dotes on you,
Ever faithful, at your back.
All she has she offers you.
Her gifts of breath and life and love.
Though you may cloak yourself from her affection,
She pines every moment of the day
And waits by the door all night to see you again,
To sway you in the dance,
Always eager to be your partner.
She beckons, and for a moment, you can’t decide
Until you step free and embrace her,
Throw yourself to her widespread arms
And let her take you to the far horizons,
Lifting you to the sky and away from the bindings of this world.
