Foreign Wind

I can feel this foreign wind blowing around me in this foreign land. The sun has gone away and this wind and rain was not what we had planned.


The sky is grey and heavy and the trees all dance and sway in this foreign wind that speaks to me but I can’t understand what it has to say.


I look to the left and then to the right the view is absolutely stunning such a shame it is only shown to me in this half light.
What is it hiding this wind is very cunning.

I am amazed at the majesty this wind does command it moves the clouds, the trees and grass like a gentle hand.
Last night it sang a lullaby as I drifted off to sleep and today has been an opera racing through towns and villages, castles and keep.
Maybe tomorrow the sun will return and visit us and bring the warmth for which I yern. But for now I am happy to listen to this magic sound of the foreign wind as this foreign land it moves around.

    lovely musical times…
    &it’s been a long time that I’ve seen someone using the old English spelling such as for “yern” instead of “yearn”…
    Peace & Light

      Thank you there is something mystic and lyrical about this area. I used the old words because the house here is 13th century and so the old outweighs the new. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I always enjoy listening to the wind blowing
    through the trees, it has a calming quality that
    offers warmth as one snuggles down to sleep ๐Ÿ™‚

    I hope that you are very well
    my fine and wicked good friend ๐Ÿ™‚

    I love the wind, its freedom, and I know that if a mountain could, it would bow to the wind, every year the rivers of tears flow because it can not.

    I like this very much, especially the sound of the words. There is one false note, though, in my opinion: “The view is absolutely stunning”, which is from a postcard.
