Restless Winds

All too familiar March trail and street sweepers raise mile-high clouds of dust. But, nature's fearsome furies also whisper tales of yore and touch exquisite vistas across our enchanted lands.

Restless winds create elegant poetry,
Scribe universal truths with every gust,
Carve fine stanzas of sublime allegory
‘Cross timeworn dunes of gypsum dust.

Restless winds carry Passion prayers,
Dance on high Sangre de Cristo snows,
Scale Plaza Blanca walls into azure airs
On noiseless wings of hawks and crows.

Restless winds embrace Winged Rock,
Cherish Diné legends of this great bird,
Arouse bitter ghosts of The Long Walk
And Suffering Place far off the Blue Bead.

Restless winds forsake raw winter reign,
Frolic with Kokopelli across waxing Moon,
Usher imposing clouds to the Staked Plain
On thunderous chariot of merciful monsoon.
