He asked a simple question,
Put the question to my mind,
But how is one to answer such,
For this I need to find.

I'm not a person special,
For stories remain untold,
My name remains a mystery,
A mystery never to unfold.

And yet his question plagues me,
Why would he want to do,
To write a piece about a name,
A name he never knew.

Do I say go ahead,
And let him write his piece,
Let him find a way to say,
What he thinks of when he speaks.

Do I tell him I think not,
To keep my mystery containted,
To keep that which is my hidden soul,
Carefully constrained.

I think perhaps a chance should be given,
Yet with this in mind,
With every name there's something hidden,
Bound tight for none to find.

A single chain can be broken,
If the words are worded right,
To add or misplace a problem,
While adding to the strife.

So go ahead with your writings,
Yet choose your wordings well,
For in those wordings of your mind,
You'll weave a simple spell,
As all writings of this kind tend to do,
Reach out to minds 'en masse',
Yet without ever thinking of how it may,
In the future, come to pass.

(Go ahead and write your poem if you want to Sven... )

Windrider. . .

Your name speaks to me like a gentle breeze
Let me now, with these words, put your mind at ease,
I have written about others, yes, it's true
And with each writing, I have found something new.
Something that perhaps is hidden, the beauty in them
That longs to come out to the paper from the ink of my pen

A tale I will spin, a poem from my heart
I hope that you will enjoy each and every part,
My words will be chosen carefully as I weave my gentle tale,
And perhaps help you ride the wind that you do sail.

Thank you for your permission Windrider, your name is an ispiration. . . and I thank you for this piece, it is indeed wonderful. . .
