Writers Island Flight


Writers Island: This week’s, and the thirtieth prompt is: “Flight”. How does “Flight” lift your imagination? Please share with us where this prompt carries you!

***

They Call the Wind

Moans in the dark of night
beg my soul to join in flight
sing of journeys across the sky
of brushing the Bitterroot high
to ruffle soaring stalwart trees
wrinkling water of lakes and seas
dusting the desolate prairie
and moving the great Mojave
I am the wind, it whistles
and is gone...

Sue,
Beautiful; both poem and painting!
Like with all of nature, the wind can calm or terrorize. I like this reverie better. ;)

Noah the Great said...

OH wow, that last line is radical!

Constance said...

"Wrinkling water" brings up such great images. Nicely done! :)

I was born and grew up on the Mojave Desert, so I know the wind you speak of! Well done!

What beautiful pictures have been created ..both in the poem and the watercolor !

Specially loved
"wrinkling" water of lakes and seas
dusting the desolate prairie
and "moving the great Mojave"

What a sense of visual motion !!

Thanks for your visit.

I could feel that wind brushing the palms of my hands. This was like a call to the very spirits themselves. WOW!

Beautiful poems! I especially like the one about the wind, but they are all good.

Beautifully done. Almost as powerful as the wind it describes.

Leigh Lear said...
