The Wind

Number four on my Love List is the wind. It just popped in there without a conscious thought on my part. I do love the wind. I love to stand in my yard and experience an incoming storm, the building up of the wind until I'm forced to go in. I love the wind off the ocean and it's smell. I love the wind in Autumn and the smells of dry leaves and wood smoke.
The wind is what causes movement in nature, causes the leaves to swirl around in a dance, the bare branches to talk, the tall grasses to whisper. The wind is what erodes stone, smooths it down, moves sand in the deserts, causes waves.
