"Never part without loving words to think of during your absence. It may be that you will not meet again in this life."

the powerful beauty of the breeze
that flows and fumbles through my hair
it tickles your skin
explosive shivers rush up your spine
it's a cool wind
coating a comforting warmth
the beautiful colors
racing through the swirls of leaves
dyeing everything it touches
Oh how beautiful an artist the wind is
that makes my eyes water
turns my face rosy red and vibrant pink
persistent in flow
and travels the world
strikes disaster
and yells freedom
its beautiful whistles
piercing my ears
speak of the wonders
Oh how beautiful an artist the wind is
singing to the world
of the beauty held within
can't you just see the colors scattered all around
the beauty has found itself everywhere
so has its song
enjoy the silence.
just listen.

I really like how you anthropomorphized the wind, and I like the part at the end, "enjoy the silence; just listen" that can really apply to happiness. Thanks!
