There She Blows

Updated on January 5, 2017

Just Outside My Window

Here I am all safe and warm

The loud whipping sounds all night long

Ringing the wind charms

Ding, ding , ding

Dong, ding , ding , ding

For a second all is quiet

Then the sounds start up again

With a softer cling, cling, cling

I am sure the trees are swaying

Any loose branches are falling

With great strength and force

The wind strikes our home relentlessly

A soft knock and a sudden creek

The charms of life keep ringing

The birds have all found a safe place for hiding

In darkness or in light

The wind an invisible, fierce and powerful sight

      Michael-Milec Wind is a beautiful reminder of the exquisite nature of nature. It can be useful in wind power. Then when trying to fly a kite impossible without it. When it becomes destructive maybe there is a reason we are not aware of. I like to think it gives us time to appreciate all we have and how quickly we can lose it. Disasters pull people together to help each other who might of not even noticed each other before. Thank you for reading and caring. Oh beautiful wind give me a lift when I am tired. Push me along when I am slow. Give me a cool reminder how special you are when I am hot. Have a great day.

      Wind comes with certain tasks. Sometimes the order is ringing the chimes "ding-dong- ding..." (I like that) . Other times, well bringing down trees and buildings making us helpless spectators of the Natures game livingus in awe. And still we find it as happy survivors, don't we ?

      Catherine Giordano The wind can do some damage it also can be used for energy. I like the feeling of power it holds and it reminds us how both beautiful and destructive nature can be. Thank you for reading and sharing. Have a good night. The wind goes unnoticed unless you want to fly a kite.

      This is a great poem. It really evokes the feeling of a windy night, and hwow great it is to be safe and warm inside on windy nights.
