Grace and peace to you.
In the relentless wind
the people on the street stagger
to keep from crashing into each other.
We look most of the time like strangers,
like we’re ignoring each other,
as if we have nothing to do with each other,
but actually our lowered heads
and preoccupied gazes, our silences
and fastidious avoidances
are how we lurch and resist
the powerful wind howling within us, given,
that bends us with irresistible love
toward each other.
as the entire atmospheric condition
of our relatedness sweeps through us.
Invisible connection will prevail,
despite scattered areas of resistance.
