As The Wind Speaks

As the Wind Speaks…

April sun fades in crimson skies,
Serenaded by catbird cries.
Owl takes refuge in maple tree
As the wind speaks softly to me.

Thoughts tumble down, into the fray 
At the end of a weary day.
Golden moon rises high and free
As the wind speaks softly to me.

In a trance, dancing by starlight;
Lips like velvet deep in the night.
Arms enfold and rock me gently
As the wind speaks softly to me.

April sun fades in crimson skies
As the wind speaks softly to me.

    If what is at stake is risk versus reward,
    you are up for a healthy dose of play it forward.
    If skin in the game is what I just heard,
    no rest for the wary until thirty-three and a third.
    If mention made here is not quite clear,
    you’ll fathom all when coming up for air.
    Catch you on the flip side when you get back in gear.
