Poetry Friday - I Am The Wind

It's Poetry Friday once again, and while I toil on for my NaNoWriMo word count (more than half-way there!) I present another poem by my daughter. This one was done as a school assignment and ultimately found it's way into our local newspaper.

I Am The Wind
by KRM (grade 8)

I am flowing, yet wild.
I wonder what its like to be still.
I hear the whispering.
I see the flowers waving.
I want them to join in my dance.

I am flowing, yet wild.
I pretend I make the world spin.
I feel the thrill of the dance.
I touch the clouds' hands.
I worry I will be too harsh.
I cry when someone won't dance.

I am flowing, yet wild.
I understand I won't live forever.
I say, I live in the moment.
I dream the dance will live on.
I try to dance with the clouds
I hope to dance all over the world.
I am flowing, yet wild.
