Windy Ways!

It is the rainy season 
and I have a special friend nowadays,

The wind: 
which shows its face at my apartment 
in different guises.

It appears like a playmate,
 at times, beckoning me excitedly for a game.

scowling like an old witch, 
it screams in my ears like a banshee.

Like a lover, 
looks intensely into my eyes, 

it manages to get my attention 
and I spend hours feeling it 
wrapping itself round me!

Let me share with you paintings of mine, which personifies the playfulness, anger, and intensity of my friend, the wind!

Li'l fairies come to play!

 And, an angry woman sketch,

A scowling woman sketch I did.

Looking intensely!

Let me 'wind up' this post with a quote I found,

“The plants and flowers
I raised about my hut
I now surrender
To the will
Of the wind”
― Ryokan.

Linked up with these great artists on Paint Party Friday,Creative Everyday, Art Journal Everyday. Please check them out! Great inspiration always! Adding to Sunday Sketches too!


  1. what great prose - so descriptive about the ways of the wind - it is my least favourite type of weather (unless it's a warm breeze and I'm lying on a sunbed somewhere lovely and warm!) but you've managed to make it sound like something to look forward to and your illustrations capture those different moods perfectly!

  2. wonderful, amazing how you painted 'the wind' ~ great post ~thanks, ^_^ (A Creative Harbor)

  4. I live in a place known for its wind so I'm truly enchanted by your art today.

  6. I like the poetry and the fairy drawings...all those leaves! That last portrait got my attention as well. Well done! HPPF!!! PS It is windy here too today!
