LISTEN TO THE WIND

Listen to the wind when its hush transforms into twirls of laughter in which it dances with the gods till the break of dawn; pushed aside by the serene but mighty queen----the golden sun who claims the day. Listen to the wind who insists on howling while disturbing the spirits of the dell, waking them from their ghostly dreams, forcing them to flitter above the treetops, weaving in agitation at the intrepid bluster, cursing its proximity of force. Listen to the wind whose anger turns into rage, defying all who block its savage path, roaring like a lion, chasing its prey till it drops from fatigue, joyful in its feast of destruction, satiated for the moment until its hunger bellows again.

"weaving in agitation at the intrepid bluster, cursing its proximity of force."...I love that moment in your poem... so many memorable lines here.. I like how the wind is changeable throughout the stanzas, from laughable, joyful, to full of rage, and back to satisfaction. Always, Laura

Dear Laura, I woke up this morning to your very encouraging review. My cup of coffee and almond bear claw pastry tasted even better with your words of kindness. Have a great St. Patty's Day, Sonia.
