   That Sapphire Wind

The sky is alert with a sapphire wind
that has cleaned the ridge
and torn the yellow leaves
and all the waters fluff up
and slap the air with surprise

a whisper storms across my skin
and nudges my dormant with ions
spreading down the canyon
in a golden dusting of passion
that lifts like spirit water
and fills my empty

and I see from the window a dance
that pirouettes across the garden
and I walk into it with my eyes shut
and feel the wings of exuberance
blow across my mind

and carry me across the meadow
where the earth has scattered seed
skipping with delight my hands holding revelry
across such miles as we are bound
the wind the wind takes me

and twirls my dazzled eyes to you
and opens my gown around me
so you can see my blushed significance
for I can climb the sky
filled with the sap of spring still
not folded or crunched in lack
but displayed and colored with chameleon

Will you come with me across the narrows
down the path into the glen
and pull my dainty dancing slippers off
and touch my soul with your wonder yes
for I would be your soft air
in mold around your swift rising breath
until the night clothes me in chill
and you cover me with feathers.

Oh, Martie, you took me there - I felt it - I saw it - how can you paint my feelings so much better than I can!!!  Your meticulous imagery holds me captive, and your visions of nature and the ocean and the wind and everything ... holds me in rapture.  You have a wonderful way of appealing to all the senses.  I just had to tell you.  Thank you for sharing your beautiful talent!

and

and you cover me with feathers."

These are some of the most beautiful lines I have EVER read and I truly envy the one they were written for.

a whisper storms across my skin
spreading down the canyon
and nudges my dormant with ions
in a golden dusting of passion
that lifts like spirit water
and fills my empty

and I see from the window a dance
that pirouettes across the garden
and I walk into it with my eyes shut
and feel the wings of exuberance
blow across my mind

and carry me across the meadow
where the earth has scattered seed
skipping with delight my hands holding revelry
across such miles as we are bound
the wind the wind takes me

and twirls my dazzled eyes to you
and opens my gown around me
so you can see my blushed significance
for I can climb the sky
filled with the sap of spring still

This my friend is one of the reasons that I have missed being here so much and I will take this with me in my dreams many a night to come.  And btw, yes, I will be more than happy to come take off your slippers and show you all the wonders that come to mind, especially in your blushed significance...   Have you any doubt of this ever?  No, I think not.  Loved it and love you my friend.
