Poetry Friday: I Am the Wind by Zoe Atkins

Current Mood: hopeful
Current Song: Once Should Be Enough by Jillian Edwards

I am the wind that wavers,
You are the certain land;
I am the shadow that passes
Over the sand.

I am the leaf that quivers,
You the unshaken tree;
You are the stars that are steadfast,
I am the sea.

- from I Am the Wind by Zoe Atkins

So do I.
I love the strength of the steadfast.

The beauty in this poem is almost a physical thing. So well done.
