This morning I gathered coffee, journal, and pen. I parted the curtains and lifted the shades. I plopped back into bed, ready to write. I was distracted by the howling of winds, and the glitter outside my window. My eyes flicked from journal to window for the next thirty minutes or so.
I love nature. Today I could see the wind, as well as hear it. The trees were blown free of their Winter coats. The roof was swept clean. Bits of displaced snow hovered outside the window like motes of dust, before falling to the earth below. Some landed on bare ground, melting into the mud. Some fell into snow piles, belonging again with their kind.
The sky was blue and the sun shined so bright. The warmth reached through the glass and found my feet.
I liked today’s prompt, Persistence, and I intended to write something profound about putting pen to page when the brain is stubbornly quiet. Instead, I watched the wind.
