wind

is the wind an animal
creeping through the grass
crashing through the trees
running ahead of a storm
as if to seek some shelter
breathing lightly in the night
resting here before returning
to its home to sleep

is the wind an animal
with naked staring eyes
lonely in the night
wandering over the drying plain
climbing mountains to weep with clouds
descending in fury in an instant
losing breath in this dusty world
to return softly on your cheek

is the wind an animal?
