A Blustery Day

Here I am.

In the moment.

Feeling the rain slash into me as I push through the wind.

I wish to be elsewhere warm and dry,

But Nature’s stinging needles keep me here.

Present.

Experiencing the anger and force of the wind.

My cannot wander as I focus on my destination;

My goal to get there in one piece.

Howling wind and slashing rain,

Umbrellas no protection.

The heavens have opened to wash the earth clean

To the accompaniment of banshees howling in dismay at what they see.

Here I am.

In the moment.

But wishing for a gentle breeze and warm sunshine.

  1. What a beautiful poetry wish and I love the image too. We have the same weather here today and I am going to curl up in a little while on my couch and watch my “Angel” series with a bowl of soup. You are welcome to join. 🙂 *hugs*
