Author's Note

Neva Flores Smith - Changefulstorm
From a flaming fire, Time hailed the Wind
Because he was enamored
By the way she scattered leaves in gusts so sweet
He celebrated her beauty by running his hands backward
Whirling streaks of fire in flaming heat

Morning beckoned to the hands of Time to see the Ocean wide
To try and end his celebration of the Wind
Hoping he would be enamored
By the changing tide
His backward running, he would then unwind

Time's flaming fire burned higher, as he felt a breeze
Flowing cool, on his quickly spinning hands
No rest would he find, until the Wind he pleased
Ignoring Morning, he moved even faster
Surely, she would understand

Evening persuaded Morning to leave this post to him
Thinking he could stop Time's ardent quest
Yet he forgot that true love cannot be dimmed
When he showed him all the stars
He loved best

From a flaming fire, Time hailed the Wind
Knowing that she was his one desire
Morning and Evening could never stop his hands
For Time's love for the Wind
Fed his fire

I always knew that a bellows and some time was all it needed to turn a spark into a raging flame. Now I know why. What a wonderful mythical piece. It's almost like a religious legend explaining the nature of things. Reminded me of some Native American folklore I have read but completely original.

fire, wind, time....you have taken three elements and created the perfect storm in golden poetry...throw in a healthy portion of romance and you have a gorgeous poem, throw in the writing of changeful storm and the dulcet tones of Neva's voice...and you have a masterpiece!
