‘Whispers of Wind and Water’

Whispers of Wind and Water

Far from the madness of modernity
We step wistfully into the world
That wind and water have made.

A sanctuary free from stomping men
Here only a few slender feet slide
Along the river where singing birds glide.

The birds whistle to the wind’s tune
In the chorus of woodland calm,
An aural escape from the urban typhoon.

In the forest, the only true titans
Are the trees, shouldering the leaves,
The burden of gentle giants.

Trickles of water whisper away,
Sharing secrets with the flowers
And the creatures in its compass.

This realm is one of freedom,
Where no demands bloom,
A quiet refuge in any season.

That is the wonderful world
That the wind and water made.
