Written of a beautiful friend.
------------------------------

I do not chase the wind
for it cannot be caught
and after I have fought
my way to the mountaintop
there would be no way to go
but down.

I do not chase the wind
for dreams are for their time
and I am wise, if past my prime,
and know how not to make an ass
of myself by thinking above the waist
sometimes.

I do not chase the wind
for it is but a metaphor
or five or six for the war
between the soul and the flesh
damned to fail and wail at rainbows
"Not fair!"

I do not chase the wind
for it would not be fair,
although if I would dare,
she might find me swift of foot,
carrying my golden apples of
poetry.

Sweet wisdom William. Love the content of the second stanza and those "golden apples".

Compelling and I really like the rhyme scheme. The last verse is my favorite. "Golden apples of poetry" such a wonderful phrase.
