~ A Windy Day ~
Sitting on my balcony
Listening to the wind
Watching the trees as they sway
The wind is caressing my skin.
The trees are singing a beautiful song
This melody I can hear
Soft and very soothing
It's music to my ears.
Leaves cascading from the trees
The wind swirls them around
Decorative designs in the yard
Pictures formed on the ground.
Watching so many ripples form
In the stream down below
Carrying many discarded leaves
Their destination is unknown.
Birds clinging to the branches
Telling each other of their plight
The trees are swaying to and fro
They've decided not to take flight.
I close my eyes and let the wind
Swirl my hair about my face
Caressing every part of my body
The wind will leave its trace.
Some branches start tumbling down
A gust of wind comes ripping through
Stronger than the previous one
This wind is hollering at you.
'Come on out and feel my strength
Come on out and hear my song
I'll sing it to you and to others
Don't worry, it won't take long.
So I sit out here and let the wind
Sing its beautiful song to me
Caressing and embracing
A song from eternity.
