PATH OF WIND



The long and lonely path
Of the wind
Silent or roaring
Through ages and times
Through seasons and climes
Over seas and sands
Through hills and caves.
Many travels, sad and lone
Answering to what purpose
And obeying whose call?
I wonder, of what use
Is man's journey
On the winding paths
Of life and death?
