The inspiration for this painting is from the poem:

"Let Me Tell You About Winds"

Let me tell you about winds.
They can go anywhere.
They need no visa to enter
your hair or a country
drawn by a cartographer’s pen.

They can carry things.
They can carry a grain of sand
across a century,
or petals of a ripened rose
toward its dying.

They can spread the waves
into a tide from the ocean floor,
or spread your warmth in whispers
across my soul.
They can stir trees into ballet
or sweep your song
into the nations of my heart.

Let me tell you about winds.
They whistled rumors to eternity.
Time, sand, sky.
All that never ends.
They carried you to me
And gave me breath
to carry on.
