White clouds brush the bottom of the sky
As bright sails rush headlong over white-tipped waves.
Misty rain, dancing with a rainbow
Forms a bridge between sea and sky

Where seagulls cavort and dance on wing tips.

Unseen, the wind gives
Direction… to clouds and rain,
Power… to the sails, and
Support… to the gulls.

Thank you for bringing wind into my life!


Unseen Power
