• Nature



    Who knows where the wind goes

      after its fury is blown

    Perhaps it waits in quiet states,

      its garnishment unknown


    Ravaging coastlines, whirling about

    Sopping landscapes, withholding

      affecting drought


    It delivers all manner of chaos and tears

    Sewing seeds, rippling waters, casting fears


    Blades of ice and drops of rain

      are friends and foes in its domain


    Whistling ‘round chimney tops,

      down on meadows over crops

    Soaring high in outer space,

      closing in on the heavenly chase


    Rustling leaves and slamming doors

    Driving metal into floors


    Tickling ears, nuzzling navels

    Blowing napkins off of tables


    Sending hopes and dreams o’flight

      into someplace out of sight


    Howling , smashing swingsets, stairs

      Gentling rocking cradles, porch chairs


    Moving turbines in the haze

    Opening sails, curling waves


    I felt you strong just yesterday

      Now it’s calm, you went away


    Whispering in mellow notes

    How the flying feather floats

    Flapping flags, and market totes


    Flirting with knickers, scooting up skirts

    Waving daiseys and swirling dirt


    Swooshing past, pricking up your hair

    Turn around and look, no one’s there


    Shaking lamp posts, bending trees

    Tugging laundry, jingling keys

    Blustery, moaning, was that the breeze


    Gusty, squally sea gulls fly

    Balloons and paper go bye bye

    Gone forever, why, why, why


    O’mighty wind do you not care

    You are here, there, everywhere

    Leaving harbors, beaches bare


    Captured up you’ll never be,

    Can’t be stopped, you must be free


    Invisible as you go past,

    On the face, it’s such a blast


    Angry, musing, soft and strong

    O’beauty wind where have you gone

    Likely no where, along

    -M. Jacobs

    Lovely visuals! This one plays and frolics while touching on potential fury. I love the wind, water, all things natural... this one gets a 10 from me.



    ty, Bloomingsun, I am pleased you enjoyed it.

    Stryx commented on Wind


    Except for a couple of lines you captured several moments we all have experienced. And fine moments they are.



    thanks for reading and commenting, I think it was one of the longest poems I have ever done.

    Heard this in a song "Love is like the wind. You can't see it but you can feel it." I will always remember that line. Enjoyed the poem



    thank you.

    Grito commented on Wind


    That wind, that wind sure is lucky, to wild and play, everywhere, in everyway.



    Thanks for reading and commenting.

    Poetry is finer and more philosophical than history; for poetry expresses the universal, and history only the particular.
