makes the branches bend and bow
in holy reverence

The green and the grey

by Jem Croucher

The prevailing Sou’Westerly’s blowing quite hard
with white horses out there today
Its cooler but the view from the beach
is great with the green and the grey

I wish in sounds that the wind makes
when rustling the leaves in rain, and
shakes, scattered and thrushed.

Haiku – 4

by scatterednotebooks

direful clouds roar in
storm rises – twisting swiftly
wind high and growling

They howl
As they circle the house
Pushing and shoving
Trying to bull their way through

A Fond Farewell

by Nick Anthony

Veins of auburn and burnt orange
Adorn the wooded mountain side.

A dense mist shrouds the valley
Hanging so low as to blur
The boundary between cloud and fog.

Where the Wind goes, so I shall go.

by A. Marie

Where the wind goes
So I will go.

If Harmatten calls,
So I depart. The Sahara a cradle so I shall lay.

Should the Westerly
Steal me outright, and collide me with
A forest, a field, a turbine blade

The sea from safe distance

by Jem Croucher


The mischievous sea
with the high winds last night
is tossing and turning
and a fabulous sight

I’d not want to be out there
in the chop and the churn
But I’ll stand on the shore
for some lessons to learn

The woods and the wind

by Jem Croucher


Up in Stanmer woods
on the ridge of the hill
we are sheltered within
where it’s chilly but still
There’s winter in here
with the mud and the grey
but perfect for walking
on this February day

Into the Storm

In the distance far behind me
A tree stands faintly showing
Wrapped within a cape of white
Amid the sharp winds blowing

Lost words

by Jem Croucher


Shouting, the sea roared
and my words were lost
Carried away as flotsam
on foaming waves
intent only on their
own cacophonous noise

The last laugh

by Jem Croucher


It’s raining leaves out there
they’re just pouring down
The wind’s blowing a ‘hoolie’
and the trees wear a frown
By the time the storm’s over
they’ll be naked and bare
and the winter will laugh
at their bashfulness there

See The Good

With the good, by my side
Lights bend
To brighten my shadows

With the good, by my side
Times pull
To lighten my steps

Walking out this morning
I felt close to end of tether
As, despite the fact that it’s now June
We still have inclement weather

Walls of leaves, green
Sunlight, beaming low from edges
Of coconuts huddled high

The Wind

by Rev Cheryl Birch


Warm all over
Sitting in the sun
Delicate breeze blowing
Gently moves my hair

Unseen fingers brush my face
Right, then left, then gone
Momentary boisterous wind
Cooling head to toe

Silken tapping on my arms
Then stillness
Nothing at all,
Surprise! Gusty joy! Gone again…

Roaring round the house,
Winter wolf
Come to play

Lasshaar’s breath,
Tidal surge rushes in,
Pressing insubstantial weight,
Against all in it’s path
