He is...(the wind)

A Poem by MsJewel

~ a scribble ~






I feel his vibration



as careless as an ocean wave

as carefree as the seabirds song

that flies with him


teasing my hair

tickling my cheek


warmed with the fever of a sunny day

soft on my skin

               coaxing a smile

                                                 surrounding me


he is gentle


I reach for him

longing to hold him close

                                                 but he is inscrutable


I throw out my arms blindly

twirling aimlessly

                                                 I miss him


he rises above me

and he is fierce as he turns cold

a storm stirring the sky

                                         stinging my eyes

racing through my soul


 he is swift


I try to out run him

                                          but I decline

my legs are heavy

and my heart is  weak


he is strong


I surrender

for I am only flesh and blood

                                a woman


                                                and he is the wind

I actually had goosebumps by the time I got to the end of this, I'm running out of adjectives for your gorgeous poetry MsJewel's....romantically teasing, I think this is thus far my favorite, perhaps it's the ocean or the wind, or just the sublime feeling I'm left with, exquisitely divine. :)

Hello. This is my first time reading your work. He is the wind was an experience to read and I just wondered if this peom came into being from a trip somewhere or something of that nature. I took my heart right to a real place and the picture you have posted with the wind in your hair really helped to create imagination. Just a joy to read!.................Kathy

This is a very beautiful, feelings-provoking read. I love the wind, the breeze, the zephyr, in all its many forms. I also personify it in my mind, almost as tho my angels are touching me & guiding me & consoling me thru its caress. I feel all these things & much more as I read your poem. Beautiful caressing word choices & delightful alliteration. It's clear you are playing with words, like dry leaves being swirled around in it. Reading your poem is a very gentle & sensory experience.

Such a strong poem holding you in the grips of the ending.

This is a new style for you. I really was gripped. I love the tension build up.
I can imagine you standing , eyes closed on a beach, letting the wind surround you.

Frieda is right....it is impossible to review your work without repeating myself. The romanticism is so real, so earthy....it is just exquisite. This one is exceptional, Julie. Lydi**

A bit of a change of pace in this one...this has a more melancholy feel to it...the wind may just be the wind but it may also be a lost love...as always you write in subtle little nuances that become overwhelmingly significant once filtered through your imagery, which is always so picturesque...you always manage to take me to the places you to write about, and make me feel like I'm watching these scenes before my eyes...this one did make a bit sad, but that's the beauty of poetry...another great and evocative piece my friend :)
