There is a silent law of growth which says that even the most timid shall stand revealed one day. What is most hidden is most radiant. The wind, in my terminology, understands this – it circles round and discovers both the cultivated and the wild, the shy and the extroverted. ‘I know you,’ it seems to say, ‘you are not what you appear to be.’ But wind stands for spirit – it recognizes the same in you. The might of Heaven is not too great for those things which are slow-growing and inward. It knows their time will come. Perhaps even by the end of a spring day their time might come…
A tufted wind which understands the wild
and the cultivated discovers me
in a shadeless corner seeking wisdom.
Such wind is never less than spirit’s breath.
It weaves and works as I would choose to do
in the world’s high places and on the ground.
Now everything that’s introverted speaks
to the sky in its own exalted tongue -
there are, after all, reasons for slow growth:
the best of them is radiance and truth.
Even the most timid will stand revealed
before the might of Heaven by day’s end.
Best wishes, today,
