Winter winds whisper in the weeping willow tree Its naked branches shiver silently all around me Bitter biting winds howl around stinging my face I’m out on the moors; it’s such a desolate place I yearn for spring where dainty daffodils dance on zephyr breeze, it’s such a sweet romance Sultry summer skies bring warm winds to enthrall Beautiful blossoms pirouette perfectly as they fall Autumn brings blustery gales swirling all around Rich russet leaves tumble, carpeting the ground Terrifying tornadoes wreak havoc across some lands In wake of its destruction not a building still stands Cooling summer breezes or a blustery gale is blowing We can’t see wind but its effect in the trees is showing 2nd place in Elements Part 2 Wind.

This is very lovely, Jan. I am glad you did not go overboard with alliteration; it would not have sounded as good! Congratulations on a merited podium finish! hugs // paul

Thanks for the lovely comment Paul - when I saw other entries I was worried I hadn't used enough alliteration but I was trying to focus on my imagery and was really pleased with the result:-) hugs jan xx

Back again with a big congrats, Jan! You and I are sharing a spot on the podium it seems ... I used my alliteration rather randomly as well, so it doesn't seem to have been too big of a deal (just as long as the content was good!) ...

When I saw other entries using a lot of alliteration I wondered if my poem was going to place at all, so I focused on the imagery and I think that helped get such a good spot:-) hugs jan xx
