Invisible Fingers of the Wind Wind Wind
                                                                      by Ralph Fletcher

Wind is a mysterious traveler,       
a spy shrouded in secrecy.
No one knows where it came from.
No one knows where it goes.

Wind is clearer than creek water,         
paler than the faintest ghost.

Nobody has ever seen its face           
but watch smoke sway above a campfire
and you might glimpse wind’s shifting shape.

wind didn’t start with a capital letter     
won’t end with a period or question mark
it’s like one long continuous blow-on sentence

Ancient wind told fantastic stories       
before words had been invented.
Its middle name is once upon a time.

It sang songs, lovely but lonely,       
long before triceratops roamed the earth.

But when it swirls down the sidewalk,            
twirling bits of paper into a dizzy dance,
old wind turns frisky as a newborn pup.

  1. My husband and I have been having lots of problems living together, he never gives me attention or makes me happy because he has fallen in love with another woman outside our marriage. I tried my best to make sure that my husband leaves this woman but the more I talk to him about it the more he makes me feel sad and unhappy, My marriage started leading to divorce because he no longer gives me attention. I wanted to forget him but i love him and didn't want to lose him. We have been married for years and he is all I could call a true best friend and best in all, the man that handles my problems perfectly, the man that makes sacrifices for ,my happiness. I wanted him back in my life badly and I was so confused. My Friends told me to buy books about relationships, so I went online for relationship books while I came across a spell caster called Dr Emu. I read testimonies and reviews about him so I contacted him immediately, explained my problems to him. Same day , he casted a spell for me and assured me for 2 days that my husband will return to me and to my greatest surprise the third day my husband came knocking on my door and begged for forgiveness. I am so happy that my love is back again and not only that, we are about to get married again, he proposed. I wouldn't stop talking about him. Contact him today if you need his help via email: and you will see that your problem will be solved without any delay. Website:
