Wind – Slowly drifting, wafting, quavering -
Like the sighing and whispering of leaves in the trees.
Wind – as lively and changeable as a child’s mind
Flish-flash, flish-flash from one subject to the next.
Wind – tugging, yanking, straining, jerking -
Like a dog seeking freedom from its lead.
Wind – as teasing and annoying as
That alarm clock that awakens you too early.
Wind – roaring, blustering, screaming, ranting -
Like a wild banshee heralding death.
Wind – as cooling, refreshing and invigorating -
As the iced lollipop that melts on your tongue.
Wind – purposefully, steadily, meaningfully moving –
Like an aeroplane journeying through the sky.
Wind – as necessary and life-giving as human breath –
Breathing life into our wonderful world.
