The winds of youth in Spring, they call...(2001)
by Peter Menkin

Many times my youth
comes to me, like a breeze
stirring the landscape,
and all that's in it, reminding me
that my companionship

with other living things
is renewed by growing.
Birth is an exclamation
surprise, and my springs
of blood in marrow of bone

are enlisted with birth's
great divine entry
to this world. We adore
the strength of youth,

calling to it in unknowing
conversations that continue
as part of daily life.

Fresh stirrings and wonderment.
This touch of exclamation
is the wind caressing
the spring day, awakens

the years even during
the aches of moments;
so alluring and enjoyable,
this renewing youth.
Carried into older age.

Peter Menkin, an aspiring poet, lives in Mill Valley, CA USA where he writes poetry. He is an Oblate of Immaculate Heart Hermitage, Big Sur, CA and that means he is a Camaldoli Benedictine. He is 64 years of age as of 2010.
