codependents

It’s because trees have leaves

That we can see the wind

It’s a rather nice blend

Of purposes

  3. It is, isn’t it? “A nice blend of purposes.” I’m glad we have leaves, and I had never thought of that reason before. 🙂 Thanks Annette. 🙂

  4. This surely brings to mind that lovely poem I learned to recite as a child: Who Has Seen the Wind?
    … but when the leaves bow down their heads, the wind is passing by.
    Christina Rossetti.
    Thanks Annette. This is a happy remembrance that came to me thanks to your lovely poem. So, doubly, thanks. I wish you miracles.

  7. A lovely Abhanga poem, Sis. You’re right of course… we see the wind blowing things around, don’t we? I really like this! ❤
