That was fabulous. So very clever. Personification is one of my favorite devices.

I am such a fan of wind energy, especially now that I live in a town where 60-mph gusts are totally normal, as are weekly power outtages. They tried a wind farm on the edge of town but the wind tore up the--whatever you call those windmill thingies. I think there are bigger ones they should install, and then maybe the wind energy can back up the main power grids in a wind storm. Sweet irony.

For you, James:

Who Has Seen the Wind?
by Christina Rossetti

Who has seen the wind?
Neither I nor you:
But when the leaves hang trembling
The wind is passing thro'.

Who has seen the wind?
Neither you nor I:
But when the trees bow down their heads
The wind is passing by.

Aw, thanks, G.

Today in some road contruction I noticed the big metal caution and speed limit signs were bobbing and bending in the wind. As I got closer, I noticed that the sign posts were actually big thick springs! Fat Slinkies! What a great way to keep the signs from blowing over!
