The Sunday Poem: Stewart S. Warren... The Palm of the Wind

It seems obvious that last week's 50 mph wind storm was not the wind the poet is talking about.  Still, wind is wind, and it will take whatever is left on the branch.

 

Stewart S. Warren remains committed to clean water issues.  Besides writing, he heads Heartlink, a print on demand publishing service.

 

 

 

 

The Palm of the Wind

 

 

I’m pleased with the wind today

as it seems pleased with the leaves

that it lifts from the tree

and dances about

 

like butterflies, zooming

and swirling in December’s sun.

The sun pleases too

and I know at this elevation

 

I’m made for it.

I thought up some weird stuff

the other day and made everybody

mad.  I thought them like that.

 

I wonder who they really are.

Perhaps the wind will say;

it seems to know everyone

twirling in its palm.




--Stewart S. Warren

A nice breezy poem Stewart, complete with free floating wind-like thoughts. I like the feelings of acceptance you offer- to the weather and yourself. Best, Dee

Stewart, what a wonderful poem! Thank you. We are in Southeast Asia, and I couldn't get on line before now to read the Sunday poem or respond. Access is spotty here. But the wind in your poem seems to be blowing here in Laos as well... we are one world, one battered hopeful world.
