A shape defined

A shape defined
by the contours

of what resists it,
what it resists. 

Unseen, it smooths
and roughens
in simultaneous swirls,
depending upon its mood. 

Wraps itself before
dissipating, disappearing,
its shape defined
by absence, loss
before arrival. 

TweetspeakPoetry has a poetry prompt and playlist with the theme of wind. To see more poems on the theme (and listen to some cool music), please visit the site.
