Lately, the weather has been wind, rain, storm, sun, repeat. From my desk, in the angle between two windows, I see the changing sky and how the wind and rain set the air in motion. Each evening, the wind drops, the sun comes out and I can hear the birds rather than the wind sighing. Straight ahead, I look west.
and over my left shoulder, I look out of the south-facing window.
and if I go to the south window and look right, this is what I see.
The sky and the trees are in constant movement, but I love the peace that falls at the end of the day.
calm as a still lake
at dusk when swans roost and
make the air tremble with
their ceaseless song
