Fay Slimm.



Here comes the dancer forever unseen
buoyantly leaving her imprint
but never becoming weary,

unhindered Air can broadcast ferment
by drafting her faultless pattern
in cloud-wisps of quiet presence.

She can create dazzle-white sculptures
snow-carved in one fast moment
through production of freezing puffs,

or light as a feather will kick up drifts
of weathered leaves high as kites
and chuckle with autumn mischief.

yet she can sink into heat's depression
and forget her whistle when limp
sails have need of windy bellows.

An ether changeling anticipates bluster
as demon then sweet ballerina
who impresses with whirling gusts

but dance she does on Springtime hills
for Air loves the freedom where
clifftops let divas hone more skills.

    Yes, the wind can dance and twirl like a ballerina, and roar like a lion. It can whip the snow, the leaves, the dust, or it can leave us all in sweltering heat hoping for its return. Loved you poem. - Phil A.
