Windswept Sky & Wind Artist

Windswept Sky - oil/panel - 7"x5" - sold

Among the kingdom of the winds,
Perhaps, there is one  of elegant mind
Who has no need to intrude
On the solitude of single things.

A wind at ease with depth
Of its own emptiness, who knows
How it was in the beginning,
Before the silence became unbearable
And space rippled to dream things.

A wind who feels how an object strains
To be here, holding its darkness tight
Against the sever of air, ever eager
To enter, and with a swell of light
Dissolve the form in its breathing.

A wind from before memory
Whose patience will see things become
Passionate dust whorled into sighs
Of ghost-song on its wings.

'Wind Artist' by John O' Donohue
