in every being

in every being…

lines and riddles
cries and giggles

slip quickly from hands
that do not know
what they are missing

soft winds
through the leaves,
kissing chimes
crystals sparkle,
whispering tiny songs
of hope
that expand with every breath
into gales strong enough
to embrace the world,
quiet enough to
reveal the sounds
of the autumn sky
