Hi Ron. I just read your poem, " Mistress To The Wind ". What a beautiful but sad love story. I love the way you wrote it. The whole wind thing and she not really leaving him. He only need to listen to the wind to find her.. Beautiful, sad and well written.. You are a talented poet.. Thank you for sharing this one... Desi
i think that this is an excellent write. both sensitive, sensual, and succinct. it has great rhythm that is quite waft like and directs the reader to the desired end.
it almost gives me the sense of an exploration. like the mistress and the wind are one. and the cowboy yearns to be joined with both. its bestial, almost savage in a way. yet, there is this sadness as well. like two sides of a coin.
This is truly a sensitive and emotive piece of work. I wander, like a ghost from time to time throughout this site--and for the first time in a year or more---felt I had found my way home. I know that this is not very constructive--but I also know that it is important to acknowledge work that touches another's heart--or soul or both--Thank you for this Ron---I just might "wake up" from my sleeping beauty sleep and visit here again.
on the other side is the mind of man, heart of lover who believes in unceasing exploration.... who can still hear her voice in the wind. this way he has both countered and won over the might of death.. the connection is still unbroken.
I felt the consciousness that worked behind these lines and can say this poem is invaluable.
