Tuesday Photo Challenge – Breeze

Frank has given us Breeze as our theme this week.

Hubby and I both love to walk in the woods, to hear the birdsong, watch the squirrels, or listen to the breeze as it rustles the leaves in the trees.
There were several places where we could sit and do just that. Sometimes it was a picnic table set up in a clearing, but most times it was a fallen tree that was just the right height and angle for us to sit, rest our legs and let the peace and tranquility surround us.

Depending on the direction of the wind would determine what we heard. Sometimes it was the quarry mechanics, others the sheep grazing in the fields, though both were drowned out by the Eurofighters flying overhead, but after they’d gone, things settled down again and the whispering would start again.

Breeze is a lovely word for poetry. To me, it suggests kisses and caresses of Nature, tickling and brushing clouds, and the rhyming possibilities are endless.

I wrote this last year:

Can you hear the reeds
Whispering to you on the breeze,
Such a gentle melodic refrain,
It softly calls out your name.
Can you hear the call of the night
Just before dawn’s early light,
Your breath cascades in the wind,
Before the new day begins.
Can you feel the warmth of the day
From the sun’s caressing ray,
Touching you deep in your soul
Chasing out the wintry cold.
I see images in cotton wool clouds
Encasing skies in a wispy shroud,
Reach out my hands to embrace
Your dearly belovéd face.
I hear voices whisper your name,
Things will never be the same,
The hypnotic sway of the reeds
Whisks you away on the breeze.



About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
