For tim



For tim


You are this beautiful creature that has graced my life

A zephyr that blows softly lifting nary a hair

I cannot cage you or keep you from those who love you

Water that runs unfettered through my fingers

You love is like the grains of sand on a long white beach

Quicksilver that flows, cannot be molded or shaped

Your radiance cannot be closeted or hidden

Clouds that skim playfully through the blue above

How can I lock up the wind?

Thank you molly.  I will write when the mood takes me.  I'm not like tim who sees the world in poetry.  Thank you for your comments and belief.
