Wind Song

Old as the sound of the wind
new as its touch unseen
Soft as the world’s own whisper
suddenly heard
Fair as mist-bright weather
dark as mystery’s heart
So the song of the one I call my land
of voice so small come
sea-deep words

  1. Nice. This is nice. Mr. Caelan, I noticed that you rarely use commas. Is this on purpose? Your flow is continuous and light, and I think that commas will give off a humph to certain points. What do you think?

    1. Hi Julio, I have come to prefer to use line breaks and indentation to punctuation in poetry. I have been experimenting with only using punctuation within a line, when the visual aesthetic of a verse or the implied rhythm would be broken up by a new line. I like to use the layout of the words to carry the intent, so as to sync the sound of it with what the eye sees. Even within lines I like to arrange words to render punctuation unnecessary. This is my intent anyway. Please let me know if you see places where this makes the meaning unclear!

      1. I didn’t know. Maybe I gave a light read and expected to find punctuation, given that is “standard”. Maybe i have to adapt. I’ll keep this in mind next time I read.
