Winds Of Earth

Invisible power mighty strength, force of Nature fearing of no earthly being. Whipping, ripping, howling - those inhuman sounds; gentleness, soothing - like holding a newborn. Civilizations have honored you - Aeolus, Zephyrus, Aquilo, Auster... Gods - Greek and Roman. We build towers to harness you, birds to ride you, tunnels to beat you, structures to withstand you. You alone mystify us, entrance us, defy us... invisible force, mighty force - Nature's strength.

Brilliant writing, George! Indeed, we can try to harness the wind's power -- windmills and the wind towers in Western states -- but we'll never understand it fully. On a hot day even a slight breeze can bring some relief. I live in a hurricane state, though, and we have tornados here too. As you know, the strength of hurricanes are measured by their wind speeds. Quite an educational write -- I didn't know so many ancient cultures honored the wind. Love, Carolyn
