Wind Walking

It’s been a while since I’ve posted any of my poetry. Oh I do have these little rhyming ditties trot through my head now and again. Most of the time I just roll my eyes and go on about my day. But this one “blew through” my head as I woke this morning complete with an illustration. 🙂

I woke to the wind howling in the trees.

“Come walk with me! Won’t you, pretty please?”

I answered the wind by stepping out the door.

Now my hat and scarf…they are no more.

I love wind. Do you? I always have. It seems to call to me, beckon me outdoors, even if just for a bit. Today I shall walk in it. It’s supposed to stick around for the entire day…fun! I s’pose I wouldn’t like wind so much if I lived where the Mistral blows for days and days on end. Although, if I were in Provence, I know I wouldn’t mind it AT ALL!! 🙂

Anyway, I’m headed out the door. I think I’ll leave my hat and scarf inside. 🙂

Who cares about the hair, right? 🙂

(Let’s see just how many smiley faces I can include in one post!)

Did you know that I have a book of my little rhyming poems?

It’s titled Words On A Line. 🙂

Have an Artful Day!!

    So fun! And, I don’t share your love of wind. In fact it seems to almost make me irritated. But, I have a friend who loves the wind and the snow and she has opened my eyes more to snow and maybe someday I’ll even like the wind! It’s the Holy Spirit she says. Not to be confused with a breeze which I love.

      I do love the breeze also! And there are many times I feel the wind and the breeze are like the voice of God, sometimes a still, small voice and sometimes a thundering booming voice! But to each his own, eh? I hope you have a weekend filled with making lovely things! -Jennifer

    I grew up in an area where the wind blew every single day. It was a deterrent to going outside as an adult. Packing babies inside and out of the car, holding the doors that tried to pull you over. Now that I am older the wind is soothing but I now live in an area where it Rarely blows. So I welcome the breezes.

      I have a feeling that is how the Mistral must feel and I’ve heard that it is bad enough to actually send folks “round the bend”. I’m sure I would feel that way too if it was prolonged more than a day! Enjoy the breezes and the weekend! -Jennifer
