Waiting on the Wind

On the verge.
You can feel the excitement
you can see it in their color.
Pure white, the purest
the white of cotton, of goose down
of impending snows.

the flowers
the grasses
the falling leaves
theirs is but to begin 
their journey
Waiting on the wind
To carry them away
effortlessly, floating
suspended in a promise
A promise  to carry them
hold them
to set them free, to explore
to grow
where the soil is fertile and the soaking rains fall
The whitest of whites
a seed
a simple seed, yet I feel the excitement.
The wind stirs
the leaves rattle
a journey begins.
