Windriderís Song

 

Have you ever been a sail, child?

Have you ever felt yourself

filled by the wind,

carried by the whim

of an ambling breeze?

Ever abandoned yourself

to fly

recklessly

to whatever place it is

where the waiting zephyr sleeps?

 

Have you ever been

unhindered

by the locks of forethoughtó

ever felt truly free?

 

Have you ever been a sail, child?

Ever given yourself

to the angry gale?

Ever been thrown about

by the screaming

hurricane

or tossed

upon the rocks

by the howling fury

of a none-to-gentle storm?

 

Have you ever found yourself

on the calmest sea

only to realize it was no more than the eye

of Armageddon?

 

Have you ever been a sail, child?

Ever been subjected

to the twists and turns

of mercurial fate?

Ever placed yourself

at the mercy

of the abrasive cold,

the gentle warmth

of the mindless

winds of change?
