Soft Winds

Nature speaks without a tongue,
and sings with her every motion.
She moves with elegance unfelt,
save for the soft winds, to whose
song the tall trees dance.

    Simply beautiful! This poem is brief but it leaves a lasting impression. I’m more than certain that I will remember it for some time to come. You are truly gifted and I pray God blesses you to produce more beauty – the world needs it, thus it needs you.

    Thanks John for following us (Mom and I) and thank you so much for this piece. I don’t follow often because time doesn’t permit me to read as much as I’d like BUT I’m making an exception here.

    Praying for your continued growth and blessings,

    I like the brevity of this one; it leaves the effect short and powerful, memorable without overstating it, which can hard to accomplish with poetry. Nice piece.

    This piece makes me want to relax in a hammock under a big tree and be lulled to sleep by the ‘soft winds’ of which you wrote. Very relaxing imagery. Kudos!
