The Wind

sitting at the breakfast table
I gaze out the window
looking for evidence that
it is here
all is still

then a slight movement
in the trees
the leaves begin to stir
and I wait

sip coffee and watch
boughs bend
grasses undulate
flowers dance
it is here

I step outside
knowing the walk
will be easier

I wake in the morning
looking for evidence
that You are here
all is still

I see You in the
face of a loved one
feel You in a
warm embrace
hear You in the words
of love and encouragement

I sense your presence
in explicable peace
feel Your touch
when I kneel
to pray

I step into the day
knowing the walk
will be easier
