Living With the Wind

Image by Engin Akyurt from Pixabay
She loved living 
with the wind
 
Her feet on the ground 
and her head in the clouds 

The wind took her 
by the hand and
she followed

Like a kite 
not meant to be 
earthbound 
 
She bestowed her love 
with abandon 
but her attentions 
were brief

For the wind
would call to her

Yet, like a fragrance 
you can't quite name...

for a few, 
she lingered
 
For those, 
she left longing 
in the night
never to be forgotten

And those few
whispered her name

Seeking the girl
living with the wind
