Northwest Wind

Seductive and enticing, my consummate lover calls me out. The northwest wind blows warm and wraps about my legs and runs his fingers through my hair. The trees lean and the leaves turn their bellies up, silver and ribbed. He whispers to me of summer, but I am old and wise and know he really is the harbinger of autumn. All of this stroking of my skin, as if he had all night to love me, is but an allure away from the cooler temps that come behind his bold heat. I smile and let myself be seduced. That is what northwest winds are for – to be deliciously deceived, if but for a moment.

    • I have a piece for tomorrow about bare feet, which is along these lines. I often walk touching my hand to the tops of the tall grasses or stop to put my hand in stream water. The earth is an incredibly sensual place we are meant to partake of.
