Wending out from the center

Fly

Both words and thoughts and

Frenetic

In their form

 

Currents of north and east

Colliding,

Whirling ‘round and catching

Upward

Drafts without destination

 

Shifting, bending curling with

Invisible

Heavy-laden consequence

Filled

With meaning and restraint

 

Currents of south and west

Slicing

Through the air around and

Downward

Cutting silent chords of regret

 

Storming You’s and accusations

Rain,

Watering the soil untilled

Until

Drenched we sprout anew.
