THE WIND

—written by Sarah

Shout the truth
Scream it to the sky.
It will never fade
for the wind will carry voices.

The wind will carry your voice
for all to hear.

Listen close, listen closer
Do you hear the other voices?

You must hear the other voices
for there are so many of them.

But do you understand?
Do you understand the language?

It’s not English of French
Nor Spanish, Indian, or Korean
It is unlike any language you’ve heard before.
It has its own language.

The wind speaks one language
One language we all understand.
No words or phrases,
No vowel sounds, no letters.

For the wind uses nature
It uses nature to speak, to express

It talks using the sound of leaves and the bristle of grass.
Not vowels and letters.
