The Wind's Laughter, The Wind's Sighs

My heart and I awoke within a copse
of pine trees, for we heard the
sighs of the wind as it danced amongst
the pine boughs! There was a
deep Whisper, too, that we heard in our
waking state, and this Whisper
we long have followed!


My heart and I awaited the dawning of
the new day, for perhaps this
would bring the Son from the Eastern
horizon! A storm drew near to
us out of the East! 'Twas then we heard
the wind's laughter amongst the
pine boughs high above!


My heart and I anticipated the storm
which we both saw, and also
heard! We had faith that this storm
should soon be upon us, but
we had no fear for our life! Lightning
flashed on the horizon, torrents
of rain washed all clean!


My heart and I wondered if this was
the Parousia we awaited, for
the Son shall arise in the East when
He returns! Are we ready for
Him? Will we ever be ready for Him?
Lo, we live, so we have time to
prepare for His coming!


The Storm Abates

My heart and I pondered if this was
a sign from the Spirit, or God
if you will! Were these sighs amongst
the pine boughs Whispers of
the Word? Was there a warning from
God within the sighs? Did the
sighs emanate from within my heart?
Once more we heard the sigh,
and it seemingly said, “My beloved,
you have finally listened, and
I will come for you soon!”


My heart and I pondered if this was
laughter from God's Angels as
they watched over us! Was the wind
from the beating of their wings?
Was there a comfort from God upon
the laughter from the boughs of
the pines? The storm passed, all was
quiet, then peace fell upon my
heart and me! We heard, “My beloved,
'tis not your time, for you have
much to do before I call!”


O man, our life is but a short time to
prepare for Eternal Life! One
must use the time wisely!
'Tis called free will!
So be it!
