but for all that moving

I watch the leaves flap and twirl around their branches,
hear them brushing, clustering, sweeping, waving
while my hair lies flat, my skin restful.

And then
it hits me, the wind
lifts my hair and ruddies my cheeks.

I see it coming like God,
like Love, invisible
but for all that moving.

    I also wanted to comment on how wonderful the title is. I love how it bookends the last line and the deep meaning. I also like the addition of “like love” after “like God” as they move as one. Intriguing piece!!
