The Wind Element

Wind- an element we take for granted, but suddenly remembered when spring changes to summer for the softer breezes that come hold many qualities. Warmth, softness and a tangible feeling that one can sense but not put into words with the intellect.

There is a sense of feeling where the wind has been. This wind that is visiting you is knowing and has seen. It has blown through the smoke of clear cuts, over the heat rising off cracked dry river beds, it has blown through waterfalls, witnessed human confusions, harm, joys and achievements. It remembers you from last year and is visiting you now.

  Remember to greet what can not be seen.




As I sit outside, a single dewdrop in the grass is reflecting the sun to me and it twinkles in the breeze. In this one small reflection, I have the whole sun in my yard. And now as the sun climbs the sky, many more twinkles appear; many tiny suns of the same sun.

We pretend we are these many small glimmers, that we are separate, these small sparks, dotting the earth, ignoring how we are actually the one sun split into many.

Every morning we are asked to wake up with the sunrise. Wake up, wake up.

Ever patient, the sun will continue to rise and ask us to wake up and remember who we are.
