Breezy Nights

The wind blows fast
then slows,
stirring dust
as it goes.
Tall grass leans over,
gently bows.
The bright full moon
softly glows.
The wind chime sings

     Our March day is definitely being lion-ish.  The dust is really flying!  This poem is about the night, a nocturnal poem.  Can you try writing your own poem about the night?  Perhaps you'd like to try personification in your poem.  That is when you address or treat the night, like a real person.  For example,

Wind, why do you blow
so hard and then let go?
Why do you stir the dust?
Do you feel you must?
Or is it just
you want to sing
and hear the wind chime

     Keep warm and have a great Friday writing your poem.  Please share your poem with me in the comments below.


  1. We are on the same wave length today, Joy! My poem today was inspired by our blustery weather...
    Keep up the great work!

  2. Breezy Nights is a nice poem! I like how you capture the various senses.

  3. Joy,
    I love the one with personification. It reminds me of how Christians often joke of having a list of questions to ask God when they get to heaven.
