    The Wind's Grand Opus

    The wind whispers to the waiting trees,
    A special summons to rouse their spirit;
    Strumming their branches with a breeze,
    And swirling the leaves to add some merit,
    As the wind composes a bewitching song,
    That makes us happy the wind came along.

    The wind's breath lifts birds on silent wings,
    High above the treetops and hills with ease,
    And when they hear the song the wind sings,
    They alight to rest among the rustling trees,
    Where they must satisfy their longing desire,
    To add their lovely voices to the wind's choir.

    The wind coaxes the green grasses to sway,
    And stirs wild flowers into a rhythmic dance;
    As if answering the wind's call to come play,
    They offer soft murmurs that surely enhance,
    The joyful chorus of the wind's beautiful song,
    That grows more enchanting as it goes along.

    Over the deep oceans of lore the wind blew,
    Seeking more sounds from the sweet Earth,
    So it whipped up the waters of the ocean blue,
    Creating thunderous crescendos of great worth,
    That perfectly blends into the wind's grand opus,
    Which awakens and inspires a spirit within us.

    Over the mountain peaks the cool wind blows,
    Traversing with forlorn hope over lonely terrain,
    Through rocky crevices and snowy trees it flows,
    Creating a haunting and eerie wailing refrain,
    That adds a bit of sorrow to the wind's song,
    Touching the hearts of all as it travels along.

    Sometimes the wind grows in howling anger,
    Gathering dark clouds with thundering sounds,
    Warning all with lightning of growing danger,
    To all the human edifices and life it surrounds,
    Compelling us to listen to its meaningful song,
    That humbles and reminds us where we belong.

    The wind's song was born when the Earth began,
    Caressing its many splendors and various terrains,
    As it played nature's instruments long before man,
    Creating a continuous song of wondrous refrains,
    That bewitches and humbles as it journeys along,
    Until finally the Earth is no more and ends its song.

    I love the water. I grew up in Cammeray on Sydney's North Shore and a water frontage on Middle Harbour.

    I rowed, sailed, swam, snorkled from our back yard.

    As a teenager I would go surfing on Sydney's Nortern Beaches especialy Manly, Queenscliff, Harbord, Newport and Whale Beches.

I will even stay out on my balcony as late as I can to listen to the waves while I read or yea.. get on my PC LOL. We all need to take breaks from Social Media for a day or two each week or I think we go nuts as much as many of us LOVE it.. breaks are still necessary. I can't wait to be in the right place and put together another live buzz. I haven't been anywhere to do that yet this summer. Co.

    Nice video, Lisa! I always find the ocean to be so serene and soothing, especially when listening to gentle waves break on the shore. You did a great job capturing the beauty of nature on the coast. We can all probably use more serenity in today's frenetically paced mobile, digital and virtual world where "information overload" is the rule, rather than the exception. Bravo!

    #15 For just a little bit @Sarah Elkins. I helped my Brother and his family move over the weekend. They moved from a small acreage to a larger one about 20 minutes west, almost dead center on the top of the Buffalo Ridge here in SW MN (you can throw a softball into SD). Anyway, they are surrounded by section upon section of CRP. Wild grasslands in all directions, from the oasis of wetlands, cottonwood, oak, poplar and blue spruce that shelter the homestead. After the final round of "heavy lifting" yesterday, I sat down, beer in hand.

    I heard nothing but bird song, and the wind flowing through a HUGE Cottonwood on the northeast corner of the property. I lost myself in the wind sweeping up a ridge line to the southeast. The grasses performing natures ballet, dancing up the ridge in sweeping viridescent shades. The wind and the grass reminded of two lovers holding hands as they journeyed the road less traveled, basking and joyful in the moment. At some point I lost sense of the birdsong, the rustling of the cottonwood, my own breath, my heartbeat, and, yes, even the cold beer in my hand. I'm not sure how long I was there, yet a phrase came back to me when I started to feel my heart beat again, "He-nay-nee" said my mind. In those moments, I felt complete peace.

    Thanks for that phrase Sarah!

    It is much like another from the Natal region of South Africa. There the phrase is โ€œSawu bonaโ€, which translated means โ€œI see you.โ€

    "The hamster wheel" - what some call the "monkey mind". It never stops, it's always going, you're always thinking...mindfulness helps to give it a rest. Your mind doesn't go willingly, rather like a Type-A CEO who needs to be tied down in an airplane seat for a much-needed vacation. That buzzing little hoozit in your pocket? It can wait.

    Thank you for this beautifully written buzz, Sarah.
    As a nature lover myself, I concur with -- and echo -- your strong sentiments. There's nothing that compares to the beauty and wonder of nature to set one's mind at ease, to help find solace, peace and tranquility in today's hyper-paced and fluid high-tech world. Thus, let's all raise a glass to Mother Nature and treat her with the respect and admiration she deserves. Keep buzzing...

    Thank you for the virtual mindfulness exercise, @Sarah Elkins, and the beautiful picture. I can feel the sun even though it is cloudy here. Thank you for the extra dimension of he-nay-nee; sharing language, culture, history and personal experience with one word. I love language and what you have shared resonates deeply.

    A tremendously worthwhile read by @Sarah Elkins. One of the most accessible stories ever about how we experience mindfulness.

    My yogi always says that mindfulness isn't an empty mind or not thinking. It's acknowledging the distracting thoughts, then putting them aside until the proper time to deal with them, and then returning to the present and your focus. It is much like the "It can wait" with your text messages.

    It seems some decision makers don't have the human race nor our beloved planet in their best interests, no matter where we live. The selfish desire for wealth and power is increasingly alarming. What is so unfortunate is we don't know about the corruption until a disaster happens.

    Very sad stories of the two families indeed. Making cuts to save money on behalf of human lives happens throughout the world sadly. I think of all the fracking that takes place in the US and they have proven there's been an increase in Earthquakes in the areas that do fracking yet nothing has been done. Oklahoma is one such state that was not prone to Earthquakes but that's changed since fracking began, not to mention all the poisons that spill into the soil which travel to the water that people use and consume. We need to take better care of mother earth. My heart broke when I read of that poor gal losing her father (on her birthday, no less) and even for the entire family that was killed in the accident.

    Thanks for a screenshot of life in its multi dimensions. Indeed there are much more complex and timeless systems in play that influence every aspect of our existence. The question is - has mankind reached a threshold level of presence wherein the very source-files of the system may be corrupting? Thanks for this thought-provoking buzz @debasish majumder

    Nice buzz, Debasish. It's very unfortunate that many politicians in the USA and elsewhere are climate change deniers despite the overwhelming evidence to the contrary. That age-old saying is really ringing true: "You can't fool Mother Nature."
    To wit: decades of environmental degradation caused by greedy corporations, Big Oil, and carbon producing industries worldwide have only contributed to a host of already alarming problems, including: unclean air, polluted water, record-setting temperatures, rising sea levels, super storms, melting ice sheets and ozone layer depletion (in and over Antarctica), etc. It's a long and ugly list on the road to ruining the only planet we currently call home. A sad story indeed.
