No Mere Breeze

When the craving comes around again
oh, forty-five minutes after the last
(such an addict) I step outside

Cocking a shoulder against a pesky breeze
ducking my head into the lee of me
for all the world like a bird, head-in-wing

I light up, puff…

My thoughts are still on inside things – work mostly
But over that cocked shoulder comes a little whispering song

“No mere breeze am I; I am spring’s very zephyr!
And he who feels me sees: trees budding pink as ever.”

Bemused, I take a gander around
and sure enough I spy a few small trees
just urging into first bloom

So fleeting… just a few days and the buds will be gone
beauty I’d never have noticed

but for the wind’s soft song

  3. To be surprised, one has to be out in nature. The prompt to take that step out of doors must be taken - that first step to something new, something challenging, something rewarding. Well said!

  4. I too love this part:

    “No mere breeze am I; I am spring’s very zephyr!
    And he who feels me sees: trees budding pink as ever.”

    I am anxiously awaiting for the first blooming here ~
