I love the wind through my hair

There is a certain temperature
about it all
when the sun is just close enough
to burn my skin, a pale pink
(my skin is very fair, you know)
that heat that can scald like a shower
and pelts almost like small balls of water

That kind of heat

When itís trapped inside a sheath of chill
like this little porous membrane encircling
each heat molecule Ė like a Lemonhead
scrunch-your-face sour on the outside,
for just as long as you can take it
and then pure sugar

I love that kind of wind through my hair
winding its way through each strand
canít decide whether or not to sit and bathe in it
or put on a sweater

Itís life, you know
that breath of life announcing the birth of things
and it seems to me that everything
around me loves the feel of the wind
the trees are starting to chatter again
itís been months
I can even hear the rivers giggling
straining their sandy belts with plump bellies
full of runoff

times like this, when youíre glad this canít be bottled.
the sheer commercialization of it would taint the product
ruin the high

Please tell me that this is how it will always be
that Iíll see this time of year with the same child-like wonder
instead of letting my years take it for granted
I can handle the beginnings of gray, even the little etches
around my eyes
Just donít take my wind awayÖ

I love the wind too, Nicole...and you have written about it so beautifully

I can even hear the rivers giggling
straining their sandy belts with plump bellies
full of runoff

Just beautifully ~hugs~

very well written, it's one of those mood poems I call them. We all must grow old...but the wind will never die.

This is beautiful....I can't even think of anything more to say to this. You've left me speechless.
