Chapter 2: The Wind Begins
During the five months I wrote these haiku, I found myself drawn to elemental energies. In particular, I felt the wind. Scientifically, wind is the mixing of different bodies of air as they rise and fall. To me, wind is about change, serendipity, opportunity, and renewal.
Air is essential in our lives, and it is frequently taken for granted. There’s a lightness to air, and similarly there’s a lightness in many of these poems. This chapter is about my spirit reconnecting with nature and the world. It is in this chapter that my spirit breathes again, mixing energy and life back into me.
The wind let’s loose a single leaf,
And it lands upright, at my feet.
