Wind Chimes

     Summer is upon us and the time for appreciating the outdoors is here once again. Imagine the warm, soft, breezes tickling the wind chimes while you sit back and enjoy your beverage of choice. Ah, life is good.

Have a “wicked pissah” Wednesday everyone. Go Bruins!


The gentle breeze awakens the chimes

The gentle breeze awakens the chimes

Wind Chimes

I cannot face

the northern wind,

and hear the wind chime’s song.

For only from the southwest breeze

will they go ding and dong.

Then the chickadee

will sing for me,

and I will sing along.


As the warming flow

brings back to life

nature’s gifts abound,

then life is good when I chance to hear,

the gentle wind chime’s sound.

And it sets a-whirl

my mind unfurled,

in this peaceful spot, I’ve found.


The summer air

has come at last

and chased the frost away.

Zephyrs touch upon the strings

and put them in a sway.

Then all trouble’s eased

and my spirit’s pleased,

when I hear the wind chimes play.
