Z is for zephyr

(a soft mild breeze) Budget
(Poetic: the west wind personified.
Also: any of various things of fine,
light quality, as a fabric, yarn etc)

Incendiary winds blow
across the continent.
Or gales which freeze.

Things of fine light quality
such as blouses, veils,
radical thoughts,

are short-lived. Sand
scours, the crop shrivels.
What is one to believe?

Try this: exposure to light
is a fine quality; a seed
can grow unnoticed.
