Wind

 

 

 

A gentle draft that rustles the leaves
Playing a song as it moves through the eaves
Clouds drifting along at a leisurely pace
As the wind pushes softly on an upturned face

A stiffening breeze that bends the branches
Its kite flying weather and we’ll take our chances
Clouds streaked across the sky
Brisk on the skin and stinging the eye

A gale bends the trees without remorse
Testament to natures powerful force
Clouds now race over our heads
We choose to stay comfy inside our beds

A storm raging in full flight
The invisible wind now an awesome sight
A broiling sky full to the brim
We look out at a vista best described as grim

The storm is ended it has done it’s worst
The trees have withstood another outburst
A gentle draft now rustles the leaves
Playing a song as it moves through the eaves

Hi Craig,

I enjoyed this a lot- the visualization of the wind, a great piece, and inspiringly done as to how you accomplished it. We have evidence of the wind all around us. We can feel it, hear it, sometimes even smell or taste it- but we can’t see it. For that we have to look and see how it affects those things around us – as you’ve demonstrated so well here. Nicely done, sir!!

Great imagery, Craig. “A broiling sky” – great word! This was a good work, circling the first line back around at the end. Well put together.

Couple of nits, but only punctuation:

* “Testament to natures (nature’s) powerful force”

* The storm is ended it has done it’s (its) worst”

Keep up the writing!
