Wind Of Prediction - Poem by Alison Smith

As the trees play in the breeze
Do you wonder what it may mean.
Does the wind coming from a certain direction
Mean something we should heed.

North wind blows cold and dry
Originating from the elements of earth
Read as the wind of death, colour black
Time to abondon issues no longer needed
Heed the news from the North.

West wind blows moist and fertile
Elements of water, coloured blue
Soothing, sensitive and healing.
Touch the cleansing power of the West.

South wind blows hot and dry
Of element fire, colour red
Usethe initiative and passion
To boost the ideals
Haste to feel the southern breeze.

East wind blows from the orient light
Assaulting with cold dry feel
Symbol of air, coloured white
Trust new starts from the East.

North South East and West
Thus the world changes
From whence it blows
That is what it will show
Predictions blown around.

    Sometimes it is fun finding portents in nature. Maybe we seek them to restore connections with the Earth Mother of our birth. (Report)Reply

    And again she's enjoying her pen! , and that's a good thing....I love the wind and you have captured so many symbols here about it...To me, it makes me think of change, the images, like our emotions and feelings in a kind of constant flux....They say that change is good, so see, wind is a very nice :) (Report)Reply
