Drama Unfolding

Watching the North Wind blow –
Dancing branches breathe and sway
the birds coast sideways

    The South wind Laughs
    Scattering leaves in its wake
    The Crows are not amused

    This is very vivid, with lovely sounds and images I immediately relate to – the dancing branches, the coasting birds. Always such a treat to watch and hear them.
