Playing on the wind

21 September 2018

11:37

Through the kitchen window I did see

Two birds high in the sky

Passing each other

As they went on bye

Flying against the wind

 

Twist and twirl

Round and round

In a game of

"Catch me if you can"

Playing with the wind

 

Wings outstretched

Like two gliders

Stationary they hung

Away they sailed

Riding on the wind

 

They returned

From whence they left

Catch me if you can

The games began again

Playing on the wind

You gave me some delightful imagery with your words Wild Rose. I could picture this scene so clearly. Those birds taking nature as it comes, playful in the wind. We on the ground, moaning about it (lol). We can learn much from mother nature. Have a good week-end.

The whimsical, not-a-care-in-the-world tone make me smile, and the imagery make it seem like I was watching it right in front of me! The poem also makes me think of parallels in life similar to the events that take place in "Playing On the Wind", like how it could be a metaphor for the dating game, or just interactions we have with others in general. Beautiful job.

What a memorable morning of September 21 it was. The flight of birds reads like a courtship dance.some birds mate for life. It is always a wonderful feeling watching nature doing its best. Thank you for sharing your lovely experience with us

Though thousands of miles separate us, the wind has been blowing here, too. As the leaves fly around, the birds perform interesting maneuvers. I think the robins have flown south, but a few hummingbirds still visit the feeders on my patio. Soon, they'll be gone, I know. Bird watching is good for the soul, I think. A fine poem is this, conjuring delightful images.

Your description are so vivid. You painted such realistic scene with just such simple words.
I don't remember the last time I truly sat down to appreciate the little things and change happening everyday.
Thank you . Some paint with brushes, but not many can paint with words like you.

Your lovely poem reminds me of the blessings of sitting on the porch and watching the swallows going around and around---as you say, Playing On The Wind. I especially like the way in which you end each stanza. Kind of reminds me of a child's nursery poem...

Gee
Crows, magpies, pigeons and starlings are the only birds that seem to frequent our neighbourhood.
Must have been a marvellous sight seeing the pair playing together
