The Wind

Ibn Sa’id Al-maghribi
Arab Andalusian
1213 – 1286


There is no better procuress
than the wind
because it lifts garments
and uncovers hidden
parts of the body

weakens the resistance
of branches
and makes them lean over
and kiss the faces of pools.

No wonder the wind is used
as a go-between
to carry messages back and forth
between friends and lovers.
