The Wind

The Wind

The wind buoying up the wings of the eagle
is not idle hope. This wind is the sturdy love alive
in gathering during troubled times to exchange strengths,
transforming the impossible into flight over dark waters.
No perfect answer sparkles in the sunrise
but see how it burns with endurance in the shadow,
singing through the unjust bars of circumstance until dreams
are returned.
Ours is the lift beneath the eagle’s wings, for by the grace that we follow
the Spirit is the blazing wind that has come upon our souls to declare a new day.
