tango in the sky

 
the lonely wind searched for a mate
he stirred the grass but she was mated to the earth
caressed the mountaintops she the sky
 
he blew through the trees rustling the leaves
but the trees were solitary creatures
denizens charged to watch over the land of mortal men
 
the sky watched the lonesome wind blow through the canyons
pushing the river forward across little pebbles in the river beds
with a heavy sadness, he realized the river was married to the rocks
 
finally, he blew over the parched desert lands
stirring dust devils and tangoing in the sky  
he found his soul mate there in the badlands
 
the wind and the lonely desert were one from the very beginning
he blew across the open dunes this became their sacred place
the place they would never forget...where they shared their first kiss
she flew across the lands at great speeds  
free from her own confinement she sighed heavily
 
on bended knee, he asked her to marry him
within a whirlwind, they danced across the Earth
she said yes with a smile and a passionate kiss  
then on a glorious night, they were married
 
making love to one another passionately
he blew her to the mountaintops then to the sea  
their children now apart of all the splendor on Earth
part of the soil, trees, flowers, and the very sands of the beaches
kissing the faces of mortals as the wind and his beloved tango
 
the sky watched on and had peace...everything was as it should be
he no longer worried for the lonesome wind
eternally in the arms of his cherished lover until the very end
