    The wind can't be caught, can it?
    Just try, I dare you
    I've attempted to do it
    many more times than I'd care to
    try to admit...
    You can certainly feel the wind
    When it's gentle, it's a breeze
    so calming it is to watch it softly
    swaying the leaves on the trees
    A little stronger, it's a gust
    sort of takes you unaware
    one minute the air is still, the next
    the wind is sifting through your hair
    Then you have those days that are
    just plain windy, and you can feel it 24/7
    Papers are apt to scurry, and hats can fly off heads,
    one of nature's little reminders sent from heaven
    Tornados aren't likely to happen, but when they do,
    something gets destroyed, and is no longer the same
    So unreal those whirling swirling winds, like that of a children's
    classic. So, off to Oz you go, Kansas is gone, what a shame
    But, as forceful as a tornado is,
    even winds of this magnitude, cannot be caught.
    Perhaps I should just enjoy it for what it is
    For seeking to capture it, is for naught

    The wind that blows
    Knocks off my feet
    It shows
    Grasping for air
    Needing every breath
    Reach for the wind-Gone with the wind
    Winter winds give me chills
    Put to death so many
    Thats real
    Hurricanes like katrina
    No doubt no love from FEMA
    Thats reminds me of Rita
    The wind has no mercy wind the updraft is shown
    Wind that knocks the power out
    Trees and poles topple now
    Leaves that blow
    Its settles down
    Brisk of breeze its over now
    Darkness fades its over now
    Homes are gone its over how
    People lost its over how
    Woman raped its over how
    Homeless shelters its over how
    The wind has shown so much torchure now
    Windbags like Bush sgould be over now

    Much Love Poet

    Ill wind
    chill, wind
    stop making those
    branches bend
    and snap
    making leaves look like
    a sea of hands trying to clap
    weather beaten skin becomes ashy
    and dry lips to begin to chap
    Oh wind
    What happened to us?
    As a mere gust you were my friend
    but now you remain
    fierce, like a hurricane without end

    Thank you Tantrum for your response in flow.

    Wind blinds the eyes
    Head cold and teary eyes
    After school home work wisked away
    The smell of jutown poilishes in the air today
    Wind that knocks down walls
    Mobile homes in trailer parks
    Wind that makes your car shake
    When your driving on I88
    Gust that makes the dress rise up
    To the blush on the face when it just came up

    Flow on poet

    A dress flying up
    reminds me of Marilyn Monroe
    when she was standing over
    top a grate in some picture show...
    I can't recall the title
    for my memory fails
    guess it's hard to think amid
    strong winds and gusty gales
    Better wear pants next time, no need
    to be flirtin in skirts and exposin tails

    Thank you so much Lurk for letting me know you were impresssed. Glad to see you in the forum brotha poet.

    Thank you Nubianwoman, that was very nice, yes sometimes you have to enjoy the good that something does bring, instead of focusing on what it doesn't.
    Glad to know that you're loving the flow. Thank you nevar.
