On this Windy Day

On this windy day

The wind buffeted my head

And blew my blue hat off

I turned and darted after it

It was a gift

From my daughter

It skipped along the red, gravely trail

As if alive

The wind boosting it from beneath

I lunged and snatched it up before a gust could take it further

My husband says he looks outside to gauge the windiness

And then decides whether or not he will go out

And often not

He doesn’t like the wind

But here the wind is ever-present

An unwanted pal that sticks around even when given the broadest hints to get lost

And the out of doors too precious

To wait for those too few, still days

I pulled my hat down with a tug

Made sure it fit more snugly

As I leaned in, pushing onward

Into the wind

On this windy day

  1. Kudos to you for not letting the wind steal your joy of enjoying the beauty God has created. Today I will be intentional in looking for ‘wind’ to get me off track & put on my hat a little tighter. As always, thanks for sharing Polly.
