Outside my window

The tall, thin trees are swaying ย –

The sound of the wind.

  3. A beautiful photo, and beautiful words. I love the sound of wind – particularly on the prairie, in the open spaces. It doesn’t seem to complain so much when there’s nothing to stop it!

  4. Thank you, Linda. I’m glad you like the haiku and the photo.

    I was inspired to write this when I was lying in bed (because I was sick) and looking out the window of our room, and saw the trees swaying in our garden. For those of us who are patient enough, there is something soothing and calming in listening to the sounds of nature – like the sound of the wind or the chirping of birds. (By the way, I also love the sound of the wind!)

    There are times that I also listen to the sound of silence. Sometimes when I’m lying in bed or sitting alone doing nothing, my wife asks me what I’m doing. I say to her that I’m listening to the sound of silence, and she gives me this quizzical look… ๐Ÿ™‚
