Audio poem: The Wind

Hi

So, this post was meant to come a lot sooner, but then I got sick with something that seems like the flu even if it is a bit early in the fall to get the flu…☹  Anyways now I feel better 😊 and I finally got around to the recordings I have made for the audio poems. First audio poem that is ready is The Wind. I have tried to make the poem come “alive” and added sound effects (the wind effects were obtained from zapsplat.com) and I have added a little melody as well.  I hope the story of the poem becomes more real for you as well 😊.

Audio poem, The Wind:

And if you want to read the poem again you can do so as well below the picture.

The Wind

The wind blew
across those fields
It just wouldn’t quiet down
Not this time
Every morning
She would get up
Sit on that porch
And feel that breeze against her face
That wind was up to something
For sure

*
She could hear it at night
When she should be sleeping
Could hear it throw itself against
the walls of the house
Wondering where she was
Whispering her name
It was her name, wasn’t it?
It was impossible to sleep
There would be no rest
She knew that
The wind knew it too
*
She had put on her blue dress
That day
Waiting
for it to come
Across those fields
Packed her suitcase
and everything
They would miss her
The old ones
But they had known it would happen
That wind had blown
across those fields
before
