Dawning Sounds

Like dawning awareness,
Sound returns to the world:
A shower already in progress;
A firm but gentle breeze
Screams through window screens,
Pleasant and cooling,
strong and soothing,
Wafting over my body,
Purging my feverish feelings
Like imagined sins blown away;
Washed not by water, but by wind,
In the bright and brilliant clean
Of a newborn tropical morning,
Bereft of sleep by tranquil birdsong.
