Wind Chimes
The wind blows cold and sure outside my bedroom window,
the song of my twin chimes rings out the song of the air.
Breathe new life, breathe old ways, enlighten yourself again,
be not afraid for the wind is new hope and brings life once more.
And my chimes sing and dance as the wind plays them,
delicate strokes and yet harsh notes mix in majestic chorus.
And the leaves dance as they dance in circles across the lawn,
once they were green, now red and brown and gold, but gone,
yet their sacrifice gives life to the soil, so patiently waiting to enrich.
So the song of the wind plays through the window to my chimes,
then a lull as he draws bretahe to sing once more, audibly sweet.
The clouds sail by on their journey to who know where, but fast,
learning that the soil is expectant yet will wait once again.
Then through the darkness the wind bares the trees finally, gone,
no leaves yet we dance through them as we walk in his face again.
And the chimes sing out loudly, sing out sweet, be patient and sing,
so we must be patient and sing, for the wind is life and air is heaven sent.
Author's Notes:
Sitting here at my desk in my bedroom the window slightly open, lts always open even in frosty weather as l like fresh air around me as much as possible, the wind picks up my wind chimes one made from copper and one from wood and steel with a sun smiley face on. Its nice to hear the wind again playing with us gently this time which is always a pleasure.

now that it is winter and I can enjoy the outdoors on my patio I think your poem just inspired me to hang up a wind chime.  You make it sound so delightful...bringing life to the wind, "for the wind is life and air is heaven sent"...loved that line!

Oh this was perfect my friend! I so love the sound of 'Wind Chimes' in the late hour i sit and listen to the sound as the breeze picks up and close my eyes. Soothing it is, and I let myself slowly go to another place where dreams are made of..


What a wonderful write. The imagery so very realxing and sent forth with charm,,,

Love wind chimes, I made a huge one from lengths of drainpiping last year with my class.

Colin:  such a vibrant positive write.  Wind chimes melody and their swinging dance;  leaves nourishing the soil;  wind chilly but refreshing.

This is so lovely.
