The Wind

When it left the Artic it was as a wild angry wind
that stormed its way across the ice bound Artic ocean.
Blowing the snow clad icebergs and whipping up the ocean.
As it crossed Alaska and into Canada it had gentled
now it played games with leaves and softly kissed flowers.

Gaily it soared over the Rockies and tugged goats beards 
causing them to shake their heads and stamp their feet.
In Playful mood it swept on hugging the coast awhile
then veering inland, it travels the plains and grows in strength
turning into a raging tornado causing havoc as it passes.

Moving ever southward it basks in now warm sunshine
and skips over the gulf of Mexico filling yachts sails.
Deep down in South America it turns into a wild fury that
uproots trees snapping them in half like matchsticks,
Then onward once more dancing past the Falkland islands.

Its destiny is now in sight and with triumphant roar
it rushes on over the Antarctic ocean and slides up
the icy barrier then screams its way across the tundra
yet slowly it loses its power and as it reaches the incline
this moody wind fades away until with final breath it dies.

    I also really enjoyed reading this Shadow. I was captivated the first line on. I felt like I was being taken on a magical ride. I feel it is also a 7 +Fav.

    Shadow, A very compelling Personification write here indeed!! I enjoyed your work here very much!! (I should mention, however, that in the first five-verse stanza "Artic" which appears twice should be spelled "Arctic." This looks like a typo. I just wanted to make sure you were aware of this.) The geographical imagery employed in your poem guides the reader quite persuasively along the majestic track that "The Wind" takes until it fades away and dies. A "7" from me and a FAV too!! Cheers, Gary
