THE WIND WHISPERS

BY CHARLES ROBERT LINDHOLM

THE WIND WHISPERS
IN THE TREES
THE LEAVES
RUSTLE THEIR REPLIES

THE PIED PIPER WIND
SPINS STORIES
TELLING TEMPTING LIES

COME FLY AWAY
COME FLY AWAY
UPON MY GENTLE BREEZE
LEAVE THE TREES
COME BE WITH ME
FAR, FAR FROM EARTHBOUND TREES

COME BE WITH ME
COME DREAM WITH ME
COME LOOK AT ALL YOU’LL SEE
DRIFTING ON A GENTLE BREEZE
IF YOU’LL COME WITH ME

THE WIND WHISPERS
TO THE LEAVES
AND THEY BELIEVE
BUT THE AUTUMN WIND LIES

    1. You are too kind, Kritika!!! I find being up late or early, early in the morning and sitting in a dark room helps let your heart whisper words to your soul!! That and reading great quotes from Google on a topic. I would encourage your to write some Elfchens too!

      1. I would have to try out this pattern of writing early in the morning or late at night. ๐Ÿ˜Š Your poems are so nicely woven.

        Will try Elfchens. Would have to read about the same first, though. ๐Ÿ˜

        1. Elfchens are easy and fun. format is simple – 11 words
          .
          line 1 = one word
          line 2 = two words
          line 3 = 3 words
          line 4 = 4 words
          line 5 = one word but not a duplicate of the other words.

          Simple. I like to do them when I’m waiting in line or driving. Pick a topic or line i.e.

          If
          i’d known (see what magic you can conjure up from this start?? ha.)

          I like it because it’s a nice way to write “something” everyday.

          Thanks again for exploring my archives!!! Hope you had a happy day!!

            my first Elfchen:
            .
            magical
            fairy tale
            the movie plays
            excited heart releases a
            sigh
            .
            Yes, it is simple and a way to write your heart in few words. Thank you ๐Ÿ™‚
            You too have a wonderful day ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜

  1. This is wonderful, Charles. And I love the line repetition. The rhythm lulls me into flying away with the leaves. I’ve been tricked! Charles, if I’m still writing my Surferbird News-Links this fall, I’d love to share it with my readers and include a link.

    1. My Dear Laura,

      It is so wonderful to see Your Owl in my alerts and in comments! You are so kind with Your comments. I love so much that I was able to lull you. Your flying away is so dreamy and lovely! Would You mind my company? Ha! Ahh, Yes, I thought that was something most everyone could identify with. I guess You and I are in that same boat too!

      What? What is this if? Are You really toying with the idea of shutting it down? Link away My Dear!!
      Happy to see You

  3. Yes, I’m happy to report you have made it not lonely and so “reluctant” anymore. Yes, my biggest fan and friend of my work. It makes me happy to know that the words touch your heart!! Win, win??

    I love to lay things between the lines too like “Kissing Porcelain”. Have you figured that one out yet? You don’t need to always or often be hiding. You need to keep telling all of us your story.

    No prize? But you deserve one!! Suffering through! Ok, I will see if I can write a sweet verse? Anything specific? I have something in mind but am always on the lookout for a beautiful seed. And I think it is you who is too kind to me and my words!!!
    Have a Happy Day

    1. Hello My Dear, I have to laugh and please forgive me but you about to bump into the end of my posts on my blog – Yikes! I guess I better getting busy writing and/or posting earlier works. I’m sure the older works would love to see the light of day? Ha!

      Yes, I know the feeling. I love to listen to the wind too. A recurring theme I’m sure you saw in “I Am Not A Poet”. I’m so glad you got what I laid between the lines on this! Super snooper! Yes, there is a hidden meaning there about how we personally get fooled by those who say they love us or those we trust only to find out too late, it was a lie. I really loved the last line.

      I think I may need to send you a prize! I think you are one of the first to have read this. Thanks! It was getting very lonely and feeling neglected. You are so sweet to make it feel better and wanted.

      1. I look for things that hide because I am always in hiding and maybe secretly want to be found, and I love the layering of feelings in simple words and lines, not obvious to a passing reader only if you feel the words with your hands and mind. And I am guilty of this most of the time, not always though, if there’s no emotion put into the writing I usually feel it and just pass it over, words speak and I like to listen and touch and feel where they came from. Thats why it takes me a long time to finish reading things people post especially if I chance upon a blog I really like, like yours! I hope its not lonely anymore now – it has me as its first friend, my story in real life too in parts, if you can understand and make sense of my words. No need a prize just write me a sweet verse. And don’t let the wind persuade you otherwise!! You are very kind to me. Thank you
