In the Mouth of the Wind

Can you hear it, the rustling mystic sound

Can you feel it, secrets hidden, bound

Do you sense it, the nights invitation exposed

Can you see it, rushing swiftly, concealed impose

 

In the mouth of the wind there are those that covet

On the lips of its whistle there are those that crave it

In the thirst of its maw there are them that yearn

Whilst in the stomach of its rant hunger burns

 

Tearing haltingly at its blistering edge

The breeze longs to escape their pledge

To revenge its hushed deceit

May diminish the soar to deplete

 

The eerie mood is the winds prison door

Locked behind the human’s sinister chore

Captivated and bound by sealed aggression

The wind longing to spew its opposition

 

These conflicts the wind longs to blow

The sneaky, the sly, the crafty show

Where they fester only the wind itself identifies

To whom they breathe casts the winds cries

 

The Spirit of the Wind longs for harmony

Releasing its mouth from quarreling hostility

Stealthy, devious, conniving, rations of the storm

Are features the Mouth of the Wind laments and mourns
