Heavy clouds clotted Puget Sound as the wind picked up. Whitecaps grew in size and number, racing each other across the surface. A perfect afternoon for reading. I opened my book, but the wind demanded attention as It grew in ferocity. The wood-frame house groaned in acknowledgment. Soon I couldn't concentrate on the words, yet, in a strange way, it wasn't the noise I heard. It was something else; and I tried to capture it in this poem.


Home

 A wild wind
Makes the timbers its persussion
And the house dances in the din.
Thunderous sounds cancel thoughts
That clamored in me moments ago.
I sit and muse and dream
Leaf my book without absorbtion
Become the ear of the storm
Finally able to hear
Whisperings in my heart.

Storms show us what we can take and not take. Some are afraid of them, I am not. They bring refreshing renewal to me. I can hear the whisperings in my heart when I stop to enjoy a storm too. Glad you could take time out to just think like this while the storm was approaching. You are very much aware of nature and its tellings.

Excellent, Charles. The road to a whispering heart is through the storm. - gene.
