When I think of the word wind, I always think of the Disney movie Pocahontas and the song Colors Of The Wind. I truly love that movie and never tire of watching it.
Wind has always been one of my favorite forces of nature, and it reminds me of the few peaceful moments of my childhood... camping and napping in the summer to the sound of the breeze caressing the trees around us.
To this day I become instantly drowsy when I hear the rustling of leaves, and it's no wonder that fall is my favorite season. Though the trees shift and change, and leaves sing their swan song, it's a song that is made more beautiful and brilliant by the wind's embrace. Long after the leaves have fallen from their place of glory, I continue to enjoy their whispers on chilly fall nights as gusts stir them up into swirls on the sidewalks.
I think that when I leave this world, I want to be outside under the shade of a tree with my hair flowing free in the wind... to feel the bliss of that sound in my ears, and to feel the it's lingering kisses on my skin. Yes, I love it that much.
I guess all in all what wind represents to me is peace, and I think we could all use a bit of that.
