When I hear this sound that awakens me, intimidating its way into my cloistered night, I write…

You came into my life,

Like a whisper of the wind.

Not really with an end;

And seemingly it will ascend…

… You blew across my face-

A touch of coolness in that place.

Then no concept was there-

To savor you…

… Momentous air as a breeze-

With heat of desert to seize.

I felt your kisses on the sand;

And the journeys of your hand…

… Now your warm air flows,

Over this body of mine, it glows!

Preparing my place,

A unity with grace…

… When the tempest finally known,

I’ll bring a blessed calm to me alone!

My wind, I will remember you;

And know your wondrous balm is true!! …








In the jet black night, I waited!

In the cold dark silence, I watched!

Sunshine never came.

Dewdrops never fell!

I blinked my eyes;

And gazed into wishing well!

Slowing days passed.

Could not wait any longer!

Weak body…

Mind, not strong!

Attempted to pull out from dark,

So as not to diminish!

But in no way I could prolong-

What had long finished!! …
