the wind will have its purpose


the wind will have its purpose

the wind ruffles my thoughts
that cling like leaves to branches,

a tree takes root, a bird must fly
and leaves will whisper to the wind

we will fall but not before
this bird becomes a bird, this tree a tree,

and the wind will have its purpose
to pluck my thoughts, to build its skies.

Author’s Note: 

To go with the poetry above, here is Yusuf (a.k.a. Cat Stevens) with his song The Wind:

“I listen to the wind
to the wind of my soul
where I’ll end up, well, I think,
only God really knows…”
“I listen to my words
but they fall far below
I let my music take me
where my heart wants to go….”

— Cat Stevens 

The period December-January is a very busy time for me, so with this post I would like to wish everyone happy days filled with love and peace for the holiday season and for the coming new year. I hope to see you again later in January or early February, God willing.
