Windy Morning Musings


It’s a windy morning, the trees are trying to get my attention

Waving their arms

come here


Rustling their leaves

I hear them whispering

ssp ssp ssp ssp ssp…

What secrets do you have to tell?


Oh, I see…

it’s the wind that wishes to speak to me.

Yes wind, what is it?  I’m listening…


Ah, yes, please, of course


play with my hair

caress my skin

fill my lungs with breath

and my soul with life


I will dance and sway with the trees to your soundless symphony


And later I’ll go fly a kite

and my heart will fly too

on the wings of your refreshing embrace

The wind always makes me feel so alive…

And I really am going to fly kites later.  🙂

  4. Love your energy and lightness in the wind! When we can’t capture it in a bottle, we can capture it with words 😊

  5. Wonderful description of wind – one of my favorite sounds is the voice of the wind in the leaves. Even the lightest wind causes a tat-tat-tat in the maples. Divine!
    Remember that song from Mary Poppins: “Let’s go FLY a kite, up to the HIGHEST height!” oh, dear, now I’ll be humming it all day! 😉

  6. I’ve never thought about it, but it is so true the wind does have a way of making me feel so alive as well…and enjoy the kite flying 🙂

  7. I love this! The wind always makes me feel alive too and I always feel like the trees are whispering. I just wish I could understand what they are saying. I hope you are enjoying your windy day and your kite flying!

    • I’m so glad you liked it, Trisha! Seriously, I always feel like they are too! I had an interesting experience with the trees in that regard not too long ago, but it was such a weird thing that I’ve been reluctant to share about it for fear of sounding totally bonkers. Well, I told my family about it, but they already know how bonkers I am. 😉
      Thanks, I fully enjoyed this windy day and had a wonderful time flying kites!


  8. Me, too! Big, gusty, just-before-a-storm wind!

  9. We (meaning, our cornstalks) could use some wind over this way! It’s been so hot, sticky & stagnant, I’ve taken to shaking the plants to make sure the corn gets pollinated. (Have no idea whether this is truly effective. 😉 ) Please send some of those breezes eastward!!! 🙂

  10. Growing up every summer we fly kites and I just love the feeling of the wind tickling my body! Now I do this with my kids and I love how the wind makes us bond in this beautiful way! Thank you for sharing this and making me recall my wonderful windy days! 🙂

    • I didn’t do much kite flying growing up, but I did take my daughter out to fly them while she was growing up, and we have some lovely memories. She, my sister, and my mom came with me to fly kites after I wrote this, and we all had a wonderful time together. 🙂

  12. Loved this post. My daughter and I share an intuition about so many things. Sometimes her wisdom catches me off guard. I loved that you took time to just enjoy yourself and that you had such a great group of willing participants!
