spring water for 3WW

i think of him outdoors

chopping air with his fingertips

a chance meeting

between wind and man

each a survivor of time

but not of love

i savor the moment

yet to come

when i too

shall greet the wind

with my fingertips

achieving creative freedom

but until then

i shall entice my interest

with words and wet clay

mold what i know

bathe my hands in spring water

  1. I like the metaphor “greet the wind”. It has so many possibilities of understanding. It is not always a rewarding experience in one sense: Hurricane season in Miami.

  4. I like this poem. I can feel it.
