Catching the Wind in His Hand

Dedicated to Ayden

who joined me in writing this poem.

The title is Ayden’s creation.  Ayden is 7 years old and has a very tender and kind heart! 


freedom is~

a child climbing a tree so high

lost in the branches touching the sky

the wind blowing through her hair

swaying back and forth without a care

freedom is~

walking through the grass knee high

lost in wonder and loving the why

moving forward with daring speed

he spins and moves as he needs

freedom is~

lying on the hillside and looking at the clouds

seeing the giraffe and hippo in the crowd

catching the wind in his hand

cartwheeling and doing a grand stand

  5. Yes, Yoshiko…their Ego is not honed yet…still innocent and free. Keeping alive our childlike spirit is a challenge, yes? Blessings on your day!
