The wind blew as in a wild rant,

Flinging soil bits, bending plant,

Showing itself in this up-stage

Master of sand, controller of sage,

Pushing and punishing its lesser kin

Earthbound things, closer to sin.

Wind, as most know, has a high Source,

Heaven (the lowest one) feels it play and force.

Wind swoops in quite uninvited,

Divides that which was once united,

Combines that separated by miles,

Flings, and flies, and finishes, and files,

And then moves on as nonchalant

As if (as IS the case) it has no want.

Wind comes, do you know from where?

It settles sometimes over there,

Without a care, God only its Master,

It causes, but knows, no disaster.

Oh, who can know what wind will see

Blowing ill or good for you for me.

When a woman shortens her hair,

 

 

she cuts off the glory of her spiritual life.

Some MISTAKENLY say “so-n-so has a

hell on earth.” Wrong! 

The Biblical hell is not just a bad thing.

Nor just bad things stacked on top

of bad things – it includes many

painful experiences among which

FIRE is very important. 

 

No thanks to the ASV for omitting “fire.”
