The Wind and Trees

The wind plays in the trees.

The trees play in the wind.

The wind gusted to 40. I could hear all the fun while watching the limbs sway and bounce.

I could hear and feel all the excitement of this weather, like in a children’s picture book I have, titled “Dancing the Breeze,” by George Shannon (published 1991). The father takes his young daughter out, and they dance with the wind among  the flowers.

Even though today was mostly cloudy and so windy, it still had such an excited feel to it … I must have been playing too, trying to capture movement in pictures (which didn’t work).

    Poetry, sheer poetry!


  2. Sounds like the wind has put a Spring in your steps!


  3. Lovely.


  4. Sometimes the trees creak and groan so loudly in the wind that I feel like I’m on a three masted schooner. That’s when I get out of the woods so I don’t get some sense knocked into me by falling branches.
