    A wonderful metaphor for all that life hurls evocatively captured amongst an array of evocative lines that transport the reader from the tempestuous to the tranquil - superb Ernestine. j xx (Report) Reply

    You have painted a wonderful series of contrasting landscapes for your reader - from the wind as 'unscrupulous military machine, giving way to no one', to the peaceful and refreshing sparkle after the storm has passed. The whole piece represents a metaphor for life's journey as Tailor says. Superb penning. love, Allie xxxx (Report) Reply

    Funny, Wind Song used to be a favorite perfume of mine! And now, we are under such a terrible heat wave that I wish to hear that Wind Song and have it bring us some rain....what a love smell fresh rain leaves, better than any perfume in a bottle! (Report) Reply

    Ernestine, this is so good! I can feel the force of the wind, and then just like at sea the gentle pink of the sky and the silence as though nature is offering an apology...........wonderful

    Excellent, Ernestine. Like with most of your work, your words are woven, intricately painting your landscapes so your readers can 'see'. Wonderful ability you have.
