PREVAILING YESTERLIES
(6/19/17)

wind gusting

eyes closed

listening
to the sound
in the trees

I could
be anywhere
on the planet

well

anywhere
with trees

I remember
this same sensation
in so many
places

small town
West Texas

backwoods
Alaska

outback
Australia

this universality
in such mundane
phenomena
is always quite
the revelation

simple scenarios
that seem to convey
the most complex
of worldwide
relationships

I open
my eyes
to see the clouds
drifting by
in the bright
blue sky

I am
everywhere
