Advent: Listening to the wind

Look at what I did,
not at why I did it.
I may not know why,
and the reason why
is unimportant, a single note
(a G? a C? I can’t hear it)
in a wind storm. No one
bothers to ask why, didn’t
you know?

Now I can’t recall
what I did. It seemed
to matter at the time
but no longer. All
that’s left is to climb
the trail to the top,
and consider the vista
set before me, purposely
set before me, to provide
the silence so I can hear
the symphony in the wind.
