Poetry of the Soul

Poetry is thoughts that breathe, and words that burn. ~Thomas Gray

Since the audio is recorded via cellphone it isn’t the greatest. Some of the “t”s and line endings are a bit lost.

I want to feel the sand between my toes
in the squishy messy kind of way and
have mud-sand squelching fights in
the blustery roaring waves

I want the wind in my hair blowing
me backwards in a sing-song lullaby
as it whips and tumbles among my bangs
turning cartwheels in split-ends

I want the mis-understood
and the not quite over-heard
and the too quiet sighs
jumbled on top of thunder thighs
that ride the fluttering gales

I want to travel so fast
that the problems of the past
are lost in the wind-blast
of forgetfulness
and tucked in the corners of
frostbit islands that ward away
with mountainous cliffs overhanging

They answer only to the wind.

    fabulous poem. “Thunder thighs” reminded me of a very dear friend LOL
    and not a very amusing experience.

    thanks for both- the poem and the reminder
