Now is the Wind Whistle

Now is the Wind Whistle

A Poem by J. K. Beach

Now is the wind whistle

Through the banshee wood

Keening and gnawing

Both breath and bone

Here is the why for doubts

In the slippery stream

Making for aching

In waters misty cold as moon

After is the dead slow

Within the mind settle

Sleeting the thought frozen

In the darkness of an afternoon

Then is the sing song

In the spring of another day

Shaping and mending

After thinking that it never could

I have been taken back by your writing in more then one occasion I have said it and one of the things thatI keep seeing is that you seems to create a relation in between nature and the human being and it is one of interdependence. As if what happens to them through them has an impact on us. I have to say I absolutely agree. So when it set me off as the wind wistles well "You had me at hello right there". Thne it lets us know that is not just in our inner but also all of our physicallity. The doubts of the slippery stream again and so it continues through the seasons but always as a reflect of a human condition.

Not even the gnomes where this imbued in nature

Thankyou J.K always a pleasure

I could hear the wind whistle through these verses. And what a chill it gave to me. No wonder the mind is frozen. None could expect otherwise in a day like this. Yet the longing for things to be right and amended, oh what a season to be looking forward to!

It's all good... they're usually catalysts for some interesting writing ideas... Thanks again!
I've always felt the wind to be speaking to us, if we listen intently enough. I find it soothing and cleansing, and quite comforting after a rain. But it does get angry...perhaps that's to gain our attention.

As a moonmaiden myself, [my astrological sign], I was quite taken by the line, "in waters misty cold as moon". What a mesmerizing thought to ponder, in this poetic offering!

My best,
Kelly

I've always loved poems about nature. Especially wind. I can't count the number of times I've found myself running around outside in the midst of a windy storm :) I love the attention to detail, you're always spot on and creative when it comes to painting a picture. I also like the personification of the wind- how it "whistles"
The wind has many sounds- some quiet, others roaring.
Thanks for sharing J.K beach! :)

Thank you so much, Ally! Your perspective is always welcome!
The incongruent tenses of the verbs creates a cryptic and elusive tone for this poem... Also i like how you leave off some identifiers.. it seems to me that it sort of subtly allows for personification and therefore identification with the inanimate object/nature, "In waters misty cold as moon." Such a carefully composed poem!

When I saw the title, it's like, "Hey, Olive.. you have to read this", sounds like another poem that combines human and nature into poet's words. Again, thank you for sharing this, like your first work I've read (View of Rich Mountain), I am amazed by your poetry.

Thank you again. :)
This poem is just my cup of tea. :) the wind the woods the brook! ! Its total nature..pure romantic poetry just as wordsworth.. Depicting the divine connection between human and nature..the doubt and confusion symbolized in the traits of nature is breathtakingly beautiful.thanks for sharing such a lovely poem. i really liked it.
