Flirting with the Mountain Breeze (Magic and Alchemy)


Flirting with the mountain breeze,
The little girl experienced life's first kiss;
The wild wind in her hair
Lured her to dream and dare
To forget all logic and sense
To see life from Nature's astute lens
To sing to the wild flowers
To roll on the verdant earth for hours
To dance for the fluttering clouds
Not care for the supercilious crowd.

Flirting with the mountain breeze,
The weary woman experienced life's rosy kiss;
The wind pampered her ritzy tresses
Inviting her to be part of the wilderness
Amid nostalgia, she had the awareness
Only living on her own terms
will give her divine happiness.
