Another collaboration. Thanks again Robert James Liguori!!
(A COLLABORATION BY NATASHA L SCRAGG AND ROBERT JAMES LIGUORI) The luscious, long, green grass Sways and sweeps and flows. How far, how fast will this wind travel? No one really knows! This same wind could stir up Whirls and waves in all seas. This powerful force makes nature dance. Our senses this does please. Though it can be disruptive On a minor or major scale, It can uproot trees, tear roofs off houses, It can delay or prevent sails... It still has its boundaries. This can be assuring to all, to me and you. We can't see the wind But its effects are in plain view. Sometimes the wind teases us, Playing with our hair, Or has us swatting at thistles and leaves Flying through the air. The wind can be kind, Tell to us our coffee's hot. Or to move our rude cigar, From its blowing spot. Wind can be a gentle reminder, To put on our kid's jacket Or to lower our voice, During a downwind racket. It is always there soft or strong And never with a hue, that is... We can't see the wind But its effects are in plain view.

Nicely written Natasha and Robert. I like the wind and has to be respected. It's tummy wind I don't like lol. The wind sends us messages and warnings of her mood. Enjoyed reading. Emilia : )

Thanks Emilia. It was a fun collaboration. Robert started our first one and I started this. We were very pleased with what we each came up with. :-D You and I will have to have a go at one sometime :-)

Thank you Natasha for the collaboration. You are a gifted poet. It's nice that PoetrySoup provides the resources to communicate and collaborate on such artist endeavors. Also nice of Mystic Rose to teach me the ropes and kindness to do such a thing. Keep up the poetry!

Thank you that's so kind! Poetry Soup is amazing. It's certainly broadening my horizons, especially on the fact that themes don't have to be interpreted or communicated literally. I see lots of incredible work on here! Thank you for the opportunity to collaborate. It's a fun challenge when more than one mind is working on the same poem. Best wishes.
