Airs and Graces (Prose)

Wind_from_the_sea

whispering winds uncoloured
you make yourself at home
licking under cracked paint
of my window sill
curling the room, I watch

oh if I could call by name
what would I name thee
you who soar into darkness
of night and brighten dust
make curtains dance

filling expanses
with enthusiasm
un-navigated
yet you enter, enveloping me with softness
uninvited

once you have passed
where do you dwell
drawing back from whence you came
what becomes of you
no sense of touch, yet you caress

like a lovers smooth hands
gentle touch, you glide

Sometimes I wonder where ideas spring from, this was in my head the last couple of days. Had to write it, then found the picture.

  1. WHere ever it came from, let it keep coming from there. Inspired. It was like a breeze….or sun’s touch….you can feel it but you can’t reach out and touch it. So incredible!

  2. why question where they come from…as long as they come…when they stop coming…that is when i get scared…ha….love the gentle hands intimacy you give ideas as they enter and fill….

  3. “…curling the room,” paints an astonishing picture. You grabbed me right away until the end. πŸ™‚
    The last two lines, “like a lovers smooth hands / gentle touch, you glide,” create a wistful softness.
    πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ And Jen’s at her best again.

  4. This poem is so very welcome and evocative of summer – we just got 10 cm of very wet snow! Supposed to be gone by tomorrow, but still. “… curling the room” – a wonderful image. πŸ™‚

  5. whispering winds uncoloured
    you make yourself at home
    licking under cracked paint
    of my window sill
    curling the room,

    Jen, you hooked me from this dreamy opening passage,
    daydreaming and poetry are a match match made in the heavens!
