The Wind

They say the wind has lips
Because the wind can blow,
And truly it does kiss
My cheeks, my ears, my nose.

But not just lips, as well,
The wind has hands and feet,
I’m often slapped about
And winded so to speak.

A tongue to taste the world,
It samples in its jaws
The flavors rich and deep
And textures smooth and raw.

But ears it does not have,
A silent world it lives,
It cannot hear you shout,
But kisses it will give.
