Epic wind

Posted May 18 in Poetry

The sun sets by a wind power generator near Moosomin, Saskatchewan.

A tale told each May on cold Prairie days

Requesting the wind to abate.

How much my heart buoys higher.

Flames have set my mind ablaze;
Excitement rolls like thunder.
Simply put, these are the days
Of miracle and wonder.

I'll think, as I follow the swarm,
There is madness in my method.
