The wind sends messages

02 Feb


      The wind sends messages through pine wood doors, around skyscrapers and street lights. Through the matrix of the suburbs, over the mountains, across the pastures, sown fields, and vineyards; repeating her message to the sea.

      I heard one night as the wind passed through, that the moon is made of cheese. I smiled and snickered when suddenly my hat blew off my head, hearing very distinctly “oh pull-eeez”.

Winds play limbs at night

Moon dances in their shadows

Winter snow smiles

    Would I love the moon more if it were made of cheese? “Oh pull-eeez”
    Love this. Made me smile.

    the humour is mirrored so well with the last line of the haiku

    I smiled, too, at the “oh pull-eeez”. Always wonderful to read you, my friend.
