The Sun Will Return

WIND OF CHANGE
©By Mary Nida Smith

I live the life
of constant motion
like the wind
changing directions
never sustaining
one emotional direction.

I listen
to the directional
mood of the wind.

I stay calm
allowing God
who created me
to blow me calmly
in the right direction.

I listen
I watch
I stay happy
For I will move
when the wind
blows me
where
I have never been

Hi Missy. Thank you. I am glad you enjoyed my poem. Yes, that is my photo. I have taken over 500 photos of what I see in the sky: bird, airplane,sunsets,sunrises and all types of clouds. I would like to have them made up as note card covers.

Beautiful photo and beautiful poem, Mary. I do think you should have note card covers made of these!

Kerri, thank for your kind words. Yes, I am thinking of doing note cards with my photos. My Winter bench photo will be the cover of "StoryTeller" magazine in March.

That's so exciting, that photo is beautiful! As president of your fan club, I am adding that to your scrapbook. :)

Hi Missy. Are you keeping tabs on me? You are the president of my fan club and many time I wonder how many fans I have. When I get a picture book published will you invte me to read to your students?

Thank you Missy. I am working hard to make it come true. Plus, I would some day love to have a signing at Anderson's Bookstore in your area. Dream on Baby!
