one with the wind

I stood outside and spread my hands to the sky
hoping to become one with the wind by and by

and heard the sighing of some old wind-blown trees
shaking and trembling in the gentle evening breeze

under the laughter of the far distant stars
and with the sound of distant honking cars

until the tears of the falling rain
washed away all that remained

    “hoping to become one with the wind by and by” – this is such a nice longing and a pleasant experience the few times it does happen. hello, sir RK! πŸ˜‰

      This was partly inspired by the climax scene of the Star Trek TOS episode “Who Mourns for Adonais?” where the rejected and broken hearted Apollo lifts his arms to the sky and just fades away. Nice episode.
