She walked to work like everyday. The feeling that some one was watching was stronger than most days. She wrapped her arms around tightly, holding herself together. Just as she looked behind to make sure she was alone, the wind whooshed passed suddenly, playing with her hair, whispering like it had a secret to tell.

Wind beneath my wings


“I have come to accept the feeling of not knowing where I am going. And I have trained myself to love it. Because it is only when we are suspended in mid-air with no landing in sight, that we force our wings to unravel and alas begin our flight. And as we fly, we still may not know where we are going to. But the miracle is in the unfolding of the wings. You may not know where you’re going, but you know that so long as you spread your wings, the winds will carry you.”

I Fly!


I fly over the clouds, where angels dwell, chase sun rays around filling my pockets with star dust. Soar above the mountains of the sky, leaving footprints on them. My lungs swell with the freedom I breathe, eyes glitter with stars as I leave the earth behind. I sail around the oceans of the air, with my wings spread wide. I feel one with the skies and all these magical things, I am in love with the wind beneath my wings!

Falling In Love


She was born little and green. The green that sends a cool breeze to soothe your soul when your eyes catch a glimpse of it. Even with branches filled with those who looked liked her, she felt like she was different. She noticed things the others ignored.She heard the wind sing songs to her while others thought it was just noise..but her heart was somewhere else.
She looked at the blue sky staring down lovingly upon her from far away. The magnificent blue made her fall in love. His gaze was steady upon her.He peeped from behind white clouds, she arched her self so their eyes could meet. He sent her messages with the rain which made her giggle!His passion grew warm it made her turn red. She yearned to touch him. Having him around gave her hope. His endless size made her feel secure. For months they exchanged promises of a lifetime together, all through the day when he wore his blue hue and at the night in his magical darkness. Till she could take it no more.
One day she wore her prettiest golden dress and asked the wind to fly her away. He told her if she broke away she could never come back, if she flew to the sky she wouldn’t survive the ride.
For one kiss she said, she could give an eternity, for one touch she could leave a lifetime.
The wind blew hard aiming at the blue above, swaying her all around. She held on tight, all the while. Parts of her gave away, making her frail. Her eyes shut tight as she soared above to meet her love. She opened them the instant, she could not hold on any longer. Leapt towards him, hoping he would hold her in his arms. Kissed him with all that she had, then let go.
She fell through the winds, and branches and trees, on to the ground lay on her back soaking him in his eyes till her last breath.
