I Am The Wind - Personification Exercise

I Am The Wind - Personification Exercise

Poetry personification is a wonderful thing - as old as shamans dancing, "becoming" the bear, the horse, the eagle and in so doing, taking a different point of view, taking a different perspective, learning something important, having an amazing experience. Personification exercises are amongst the most interesting poetry exercises there are - by all means, have a go! This is mine today, I enjoyed writing it, and I hope you enjoy reading the personification poem "I am the wind" :-)

 


 

 

Wonder Wind by SFX - Illustration for personification poem I am the wind

 

I am the wind.


I am the wisdom and the freedom,
I am the storm that tears and howls,
I am the whispering in the treetops,
I slide beneath you,
swirl around you,
stroke your hair,
and take your breath away.

I bring you change;
I bring you hope,
and though you might not know
that I am even here,
I hear you,
and I take your sighs and smiles,
enfold them, and the knowing
carries forth
within my soft embrace.

A traveller am I;
I never rest, I never sleep,
and yet I dream.

I dream of times so old
that they would make you shudder;
I dream of times to come.

I only know the sunshine
and the mountains;
I only know the oceans;
I only know the creatures,
beings old and new by name,
and I know you,
and I know you -

I am the wind.
