Somewhere, there’s a wind

Carrying someone I knew

Away to a new land

I never questioned

The wind would just come and go

Did not pay much mind

One day it was clear

Both you and the wind were gone

No trace and no trail

Tree tops are silent

Clouds hang like the curtain drawn

You and the wind, gone

    A beautiful poem from Annette Rochelle Aben that clearly brought back watching the ashes of a lovely friend being scattered to the winds.
