Thursday Poem - Like Wind

Like wind - In it, with it, of it. 
Of it just like a sail, so light and strong
that, even when it is bent flat,
it gathers all the power of the wind 
without hampering its course.

Like light - In light, lit through by light,
transformed into light. 
Like the lens which disappears 
into the light it focuses.
Like wind. Like light.

Just this - on these expanses,
on these heights.

Dag Hammarskjöld,
from Vägmärken (Markings)
