Work in the Wind

A wind , bold enough to knock your frail being into a wall, Carries the sounds from oceans away, promises repair for a weary world Opens the canopy in trees that would oppress the life growing underneath Every moss, every mouse, every stone covered in shadow as yet unseen Stand in front of hills, put some distance between your two feet Give the wind a place to blow, let it find a path up from below Listen for the songs, the beat of drums Has it been so long since you felt that tremor, can you remember their names? Think about how powerful you once were That you could conjure a breeze, slight as it was, gentle as was needed When you stood taller, when you knew you didn't need to tuck your tail.  In that wind, blows the curiosity you once ate for breakfast

There comes a wind, bold enough to knock your frail being into a wall,
Carries the sounds from oceans away, promises repair for a weary world
Opens the canopy in trees that would oppress the life growing underneath
Every moss, every mouse, every stone covered in shadow as yet unseen
Stand in front of hills, put some distance between your two feet
Give the wind a place to blow, let it find a path up from below
Listen for the songs, the beat of drums
Has it been so long since you felt that tremor, can you remember their names?
Think about how powerful you once were
That you could conjure a breeze, slight as it was – gentle, as was needed
When you stood taller, when you knew you didn’t need to tuck your tail
In that wind, blows the curiosity you once ate for breakfast
