10-3 Glendis’ Spirit

Glendis’ Spirit

 

I shout with wind that blows out stars;

I shout with wind that bares sandbars.

The wind roars back and grinds down peaks;

The wind roars back and sears my cheeks.

I blow back wind that echoes wide;

I blow back wind that halts the tide.

The wind hums back and strokes my head;

The wind hums back and cools my bed.

I whisper wind that sheathes a knife;

I whisper wind that soothes a life.

The wind breathes back: I’ll raise your soul;

The wind breathes back: I’ll fill you whole.

I breathe Breath in—I breathe wind out

When breath is gone—I have no doubt

My breath will sing—my spirit shouts.
