"Tone vs. Pitch" - Alex Johns

The wind is a symphony
when there are dunes or leaves


to pass through

and you listening:

tunes weaving,
the huge tapestry of the world,


its predictable cycles rendered
myth when unpredictable events occurred,


miracles, words

might capture what it meant,
might script the storm in its movement, remember


spirit and flesh are words as well:

weather vanes of knowing
what the wind can tell.



"Tone vs. Pitch" originally appeared in the Spring 2015 edition of Town Creek Poetry.
