8 April: A-to-Z Challenge

AI artwork: a leaf caught in the wind

G is for Gusty

A gusty sneeze. A push.
A breeze. A thrown stone.
A drum roll. An autumn leaf.

It’s lay siege to petals weather,
wind under a white egret wing.

For A-Z Challenge. Gusty: A rapid fluctuation of wind speed with variations of 10 knots or more between peaks and lulls. Written for the A-to-Z Challenge. Declared theme for the challenge is Weather.

  1. I like the wind!
    But too much of it like anything else is troublesome!

    Stopping by from A-Z,

  2. Lovely. This challenge has brought out wonderful stuff. I feel like it’s perfect for a chapbook if you’re interested in such things.

  7. I like this. The short lines.
    And that leaf looks like one I had on my shelf that finally crumpled to bits the other day.

    This is my poetry blog. I’m not doing the A to Z on it. I’m doing the poem a day for April. https://ruffdraftsite.wordpress.com/

    Gusty is right! Lots of wind this spring in NYC — and now it’s full of pollen 🙂 Achoo! Visiting from A to Z.


    1. I hope you have antihistamines for it!
