the breeze


Listen to the breeze

the breeze says out, lets go out

drawing us to

takeaway coffees

the weekend paper

she wants to be close, the closeness draws you in

they want to go fast, scooters can go fast

beauty collected in colours by small hands

snatched conversations

dreams and thoughts

dappled sunlight surrendering to dusk

the breeze says home, lets go home.

“We spend most of our time and energy in a kind of horizontal thinking. We move along the surface of things…but there are times when we stop. We sit still. We lose ourselves in a pile of leaves or its memory. We listen, and breezes from a whole other world begin to whisper.”

  1. The winds are always siren- calling out, moving everything in their paths, finding ways into the smallest spaces – sending those not committed to their place scattering across the fields!
    Love your pictures- your imagery- your Autumn season.
    Beautiful, Brydie!

  3. You have reminded me of beautiful autumn days in Sydney with that nip in the air. It is very wet up here in the north of the State – so boggy we leave footprints wherever we walk in the garden. Joy
