I Want to Inherit the Wind
I want to inherit the wind
I want to inherit the wind and then
I want to put it in my pocket
and pull it out now and then
when I need a cool breeze
or when I need to be reminded of my powers
And of course it stands to reason then
I should grab the sun and the moon and the stars too since
since I’ve inherited the wind.
I’ll wrap them all up in a sparkling sack of cosmic majesty
and put it at the foot of my bed for me alone to admire.
And every night I’ll blow a star back to the skies as a gift
from a grateful and magical me.
Chris Arnesen: I’m short and skinny and I walk with hesitation which makes me tentative in most things except for writing – my mother encouraged me, and now I have discovered this group that has been so supportive. I worked as an RN for 45 years which probably didn’t do my back any good but oh well.
