The following poem is in answer to the prompt at Carry On Tuesday. If you are in need of inspiration, please visit that site.
Who has seen the wind?
It wanders the world widely
All our watchful human eyes,
Neither I or you sees it.
Only its effects:
Chasing leaves from battered limbs,
Tousling auburn hair,
Howling around sharp corners,
Do we surely apprehend.
The wind chases us
Until we return inside
Beyond its long reach
During the fast fading days
Of quickly cooling Autumn.

I am grateful:
1. My alarm woke me.
2. I started reading Winter Of The World by Ken Follett.
3. I was able to get my shoe on though it was extremely painful.
4. I drove without any trouble.
5. Mom’s new prescription is covered by her insurance.
I hope your Tuesday was a very good day. I urge you to take a few moments to do some creative work before you let this day slip into history. What you make will enrich the world.
