i am

i am here
i am there
i am everywhere

i am not seen
but you see me 
the effects i create

it does not matter the season
it does not matter the year
it does not matter at all

i make you happy
i make you sad
i cause you to gasp

waters, be still
waters, be still not

you know me, what i am
you know me, what i do
you cannot do without me

i am a friend to you
i am a problem

i am at peace
i am vicious

times i am gentle
times i am blusterous
times i am not


still you cannot do without me
love me, hate me
i will never leave

@Brian...thank you and smiles to you also.
my email?...no response is necessary, being able to talk sometimes is all that is needed.

@Shashi...thank you and you are most welcome.

Good post Reggie. The conditions of the wind, the storm, can so easily determine the conditions of our hearts if we let them...calming to devasting and you have covered it so well...

Reggie said...

@tolbert...welcome, and thank you

Woowwiiezz...so true, Reggie... I kept thinking "muse" all the time.. :) And finally, when I read "wind", I was like YESS!! It HAS to be the wind indeed...

A lovely and one shot, my friend.. it has such a smoooooth flow to it... just like a gentle breeze...

I kinda guessed in the beginning that it was wind- coz I written a few with the elements in mind. I like the clever uses of the phrases!
The presentation was nice as well.. enjoyed the complete read.. :)
Love xx

@Kavita...I'm happy it was hidden, though not as well as I'd hoped...glad you enjoyed.

@Olivia...I knew some would "see" the wind early on...happy you enjoyed also.
