The wind gets the trees to talking
in no uncertain terms.
He rabble rouses the tin on the shed door
that bangs for all its worth.
It speaks in skritch with branches
rubbed against the window.
The wind gets the house to whisper
in creaks and groans that make it a home.
It whistles past your ears a breezy tune
you know by heart and don’t care for.
It takes advantage of warm exposed necks
and murmurs things that will chill you.
On some days it talks so bad and strong
you’d think it might could kill you.

Enjoyed your words this morning, as the winds make their visit here.

Not bad out today, but the wind has been impressive the past several days and by impressive I mean pain in the neck. Thanks for commenting. ~L

This is the time of year when the winds have much work to do, Lori Rhoden...they don't really want you to take their efforts personally.

...just bein' Bluesy

Great capture of the wind Lori Lou ~ Actually I like the wind as long as it isn't crazy ~ I love the sounds my wind chimes make all over the backyard ~ Sounds like a orchestra playing     Alana

So cute and and so very true.  The wind does indeed speak a language of its own.  Your poetry is so fun to read lori.
