The wind moans, a dissonant ghost
Ooooo it sighs, as it drifts through trees
and shifts down streets, then with a boast–
I travel wide, cross land and seas
in gusty gales and gentle breeze–
let birds soar high and then take wing,
flying on currents, singing of spring.
It’s cold and windy here today. We even had some snow flurries. Yesterday and the day before we had thunderstorms.
I’m off prompt for Day 10 of NaPoWriMo,but on prompt for Frank’s 7-line poem prompt at dVerse. I’ve done the rhyme scheme for a Chaucerian stanza, but I’m not sure that I got the meter right.
It’s been so windy here, Merril. I loved “flying on currents, singing of spring.” That photo is gorgeous! Stay warm.
Thank you very much, Jill. You, too!
The blooms look like puffs of cotton candy – right color too!
Yes, you’re right, Marian! 😀 I’ve never sure what the particular spring flowering things are, but I’m ok with cotton candy tree.
Sweet! Thank you, Merril!
Thank you, Resa!
The weather is catching us…my window have been opened and closed multiple times today with each change. Theres a restlessness that you’ve caught well. (K)
Thank you, Kerfe. Restlessness–that’s a good way to put it.
As annoying as it can be at times, the weather sure makes things interesting. I like the wind as a character, here.
Thank you, Ken. I think you’re right about the changing weather making things interesting–and I think we appreciate the beautiful days more.
Very nice praise to the wind and the birds riding its currents. I like the sound in your Chaucerian stanza.
Thank you very much, Frank!
Particularly evocative opening line
Thank you, Derrick.
Wow, your knowledge on poetry forms is so wide😭
Thank you very much!
It’s really not. I just follow prompts. 😀
Simply wonderful. And that Cotton-Candy tree is gorgeous!
Was blown about in the wind myself, yesterday (as you saw by my post…)
Thank you so much, and yes, I did see. We’re supposed to get more wind tomorrow.
Sun was supposed to shine today but it’s playing hide and seek with the clouds – who are winning!
