The April Wind

On My Walk- Mesa,AZ

The April wind came to visit here today
Whispering wisdom as it sang through the trees
And though I couldn’t see it I felt it rushing past
Leaving in its wake the music of rustling leaves

Closing my eyes, I listened to discern the melody played
I heard the grey mockingbird and cooing of peaceful doves
And remembered a happier time of carefree bygone days
When this wretched disease had not created such a stifling haze

Then I heard the message the wind spoke through the trees
This too will pass, let prayers of hope shine brighter still
For all the world to see and so shall it be

  1. Nature indeed serves as a balancing agent, and continues to be despite the circumstances. I so love this poem, Linda! 💝💝

  2. What you describe in your opening stanza is happening outside my window right now, Linda! I don’t think I could have remained sane the past five weeks without our garden.
