Mr. Wind, Please Listen.

I dearly love a soft summer breeze, but this frigid wind has me writing a letter to Mr. Wind.

mr-wind-please-listen

Mr. wind can you hear me?

Slow down and listen please

When you blow so fiercely

I demand you know, " it's not my cup of tea "

I love you when you send a sweet gentle breeze

I would embrace you except I'm about to freeze

I just returned from going to my mailbox, you lifted me higher than a kite

My fist's are doubled, I'm small, but I can still fight

So if you care about me including you in my love poems, you'll listen and take a deep breath

Exhale softly, saving me from freezing to death.

Hi Mitara. Don't worry, I read between the lines too. Have a great weekend..

Mitara N from South Africa on March 14, 2020:

lol, I am always reading between the lines. I'm glad you put the wind in its place.

Thank you Ruby, you are a good friend

Ruby Jean Richert (author) from Southern Illinois on March 14, 2020:

Hello Shaloo. I love a gentle breeze, esp. in the evening. Thank you for coming to read this silly piece.

Ruby Jean Richert (author) from Southern Illinois on March 14, 2020:

Hello Mitara. So glad you liked this bit of an outburst to the wind. I was so tired of the wind, I had to tell him off. lol Thank you my new friend.

Shaloo Walia from India on March 14, 2020:

Such a delightful poem! I prefer the gentle breeze

Mitara N from South Africa on March 14, 2020:

I love it, so inspiring. Life is so erratic, just like the wind. By us taking control, only then can you exhale gently, and breath again.

Ruby Jean Richert (author) from Southern Illinois on March 02, 2020:

Hello Eddy, so glad you liked this rant. I had a blast writing it. Thank you much.

Hi Mark, Neil Young has kept me patting my feet for years. Always glad when you visit. Thank you..

Mark Tulin from Ventura, California on March 01, 2020:

Nice, Ruby. Who doesn’t think about the wind. And I love the song by Neil Young as well.

Eiddwen from Wales on March 01, 2020:

I love this one Ruby and living by the sea I know all about the power of the wind. Brilliant!!!

Hello Devika. I didn't know you had harsh winters in Croatia. Thanks for telling me. Always happy to see you. Thank you.

Devika Primic on February 26, 2020:

Hi I don't know how I missed this hub however, it is written from a creative and spontaneous mind. I like the idea of such illustrations and about the wind is a unique poem.Croatia has extremely cold winds called BURA and harsh during these days in the winter making it impossible for planes to land or take off.

Ruby Jean Richert (author) from Southern Illinois on February 22, 2020:

Hi Lora. The wind listened to me, it's calm now! I found those sketches on Pixaby, they have free images. Thanks again...

Lora Hollings on February 21, 2020:

I love this poem about the wind, Ruby. I used to lived in the windiest city so I certainly can relate to your poem. Very witty writing that certainly brought a smile and thinking back on those days when that wind used to go right through me! I really liked your sketch as well. We have March coming up so that wind may not go anywhere soon! Thanks for sharing.

Ruby Jean Richert (author) from Southern Illinois on February 19, 2020:

Hello Genna. I certainly had an attitude when I wrote this ditty. lol I am so ready for Spring, I know everyone is waiting, so glad to see you. Hugs my friend.

Genna East from Massachusetts, USA on February 19, 2020:

Hi Ruby...

There are times when Mother Nature definitely has an "attitude," and we wished that she would just cool her jets, so to speak. High winds are one. As Shakespeare might say, "Thy sting is sharp."

I loved this...especially, "you'll listen and take a deep breath. Exhale softly." :-)

Ruby Jean Richert (author) from Southern Illinois on February 17, 2020:

Hello Brenda. You may post any of my poems anywhere. Thanks for coming to read my rant. Thank you.

BRENDA ARLEDGE from Washington Court House on February 17, 2020:

Ruby,

This one is cute.

I know that feeling when the wind makes you freeze.

I prefer those nice gentle summer breezes.

Hello Louise, nice to meet you. I am soo ready for a nice breeze. I guess you are too? Thanks for coming by. Cheers.

Louise Powles from Norfolk, England on February 16, 2020:

That's a great poem. Yes, we need the wind to blow a gentle breeze. It's been blowing gales here in England just lately!

Ruby Jean Richert (author) from Southern Illinois on February 16, 2020:

William, I must of had a senior moment, why else would I write to the wind? LOL Thanks my friend...

William Kovacic from Pleasant Gap, PA on February 16, 2020:

A nice, fun poem, Ruby. At least it was fun to read. It might not be so much fun going to the mailbox.

Ruby Jean Richert (author) from Southern Illinois on February 15, 2020:

Hello James. Chicago is called " The windy city " but the wind can't keep us down, we're gonna keep right on writing. Thank you...Smiling!

Ruby Jean Richert (author) from Southern Illinois on February 15, 2020:

Hello Mar, the sun is shinning brightly today, so my spirit is lifted ( Higher than a kite ) lol. Thanks for the hot chocolate. I guess Mr. wind listened, so I won't need the punching bag, but thanks anyway. I see a dove eating at my feeder, so that's a good sign that Spring is coming. Many thanks and lots of hugs. Oh I forgot to thank you for the Valentine card, your baby is adorable.

Ruby Jean Richert (author) from Southern Illinois on February 15, 2020:

Hello Manatita, I agree. We need to write our feeling's, no mater what. Sometimes I wonder where my muse gets these silly ideas? Thanks my poet friend

Ruby Jean Richert (author) from Southern Illinois on February 15, 2020:

Hello Harish, he's no gentleman, he didn't listen, the wind blew strongly all night. Thanks for coming by to read my nonsense poetry.

Ruby Jean Richert (author) from Southern Illinois on February 15, 2020:

Hello Audrey, so happy you liked this nutty piece and the pictures. Thank you much.

Ruby Jean Richert (author) from Southern Illinois on February 15, 2020:

Hello Clive. I guess you know I got this nonsense poetry from you? Hee== Please no Hurricane.

James C Moore from Joliet, IL on February 15, 2020:

Oh, this hits home. The last couple of days here in the Chicago area had highs in the teens. You wrote what I've been thinking.

Ruby Jean Richert (author) from Southern Illinois on February 15, 2020:

Hello Peggy. This was just a fun write with some sarcasm thrown in. I found the pictures on Bing. Happy you came to read my nonsense poetry. Thank you.

Maria Jordan from Jeffersonville PA on February 15, 2020:

Sending you a big mug of hot chocolate and some insulated "punching" gloves in case Mr. Wind keeps on blowing, dear Ruby.

I am no fan of these frigid winds either - hoping for an early Spring as the Groundhog predicted.

Have a cozy weekend. Love you, mar

Ruby Jean Richert (author) from Southern Illinois on February 15, 2020:

Hello Shauna. I know the feeling, I can't stand for the wind to mess up my hair either. The wind was soo strong it could have uprooted my hair lol. It was just a fun write after going outside to get the mail. Glad you thought it was cute. Thank you.

manatita44 from london on February 15, 2020:

Haha.

You want a fist fight with the wind? She'll huff and puff and blow you away.

Lovely light piece. We need them sometimes.

Harish Mamgain from New Delhi , India on February 14, 2020:

Hi Ruby ! Mr Wind' ll sure hear you and obey as you tell him. After all, he is a gentleman ! He can't spurn a lady ! Much enjoyed reading this lovely poem.

Audrey Hunt from Idyllwild Ca. on February 14, 2020:

I love this poem, Ruby. A remarkable communication with the wind. The illustrations are perfect!

Ruby Jean Richert (author) from Southern Illinois on February 14, 2020:

Hello Bill. A mountain would be nice. The temp. was 13 last with the wind blowing so hard. When I went to the mailbox the wind almost picked me up. Summer time Summer time, come on baby. Glad you liked my rant. Thank you.

Clive Williams from Jamaica on February 14, 2020:

Glad it was just a wind and not Mr. Hurricane. Blow wind blow....hi Ruby.

Ruby Jean Richert (author) from Southern Illinois on February 14, 2020:

Hello Jason. Your comment lifted me higher than the wind. Thank you so much.

Ruby Jean Richert (author) from Southern Illinois on February 14, 2020:

Hello Pamela. Me talking to the wind is far-out, and I'm happy you thought it was humorous. Thank you.

Peggy Woods from Houston, Texas on February 14, 2020:

That must have been a powerful wind on your trip to the mailbox! I enjoyed this cute poem of yours and the illustrations are perfect accompaniments.

Ruby Jean Richert (author) from Southern Illinois on February 14, 2020:

Hello Lorna. I am so glad you thought this ( out of the blue ) story was funny. Thank you much.

Ruby Jean Richert (author) from Southern Illinois on February 14, 2020:

Ruby Jean Richert (author) from Southern Illinois on February 14, 2020:

Hello Verlie. Take that Mr. Wind! You've been warned. So glad you came to read my rant. It was 13 last night, soooo ready for Spring.

Ruby Jean Richert (author) from Southern Illinois on February 14, 2020:

Hello Umesh, I really had no idea of writing this until I went to the mailbox, and literally was picked up by the wind. It just popped in my head to tell he/she off. LOL I wasn't sure Hubpages would publish it, it's so nutty. I am glad you thought it was humorous. Thank you.

Shauna L Bowling from Central Florida on February 14, 2020:

Cute poem, Ruby. It gets pretty windy here sometimes. Fortunately, we don't have frigid temps in Central Florida, but strong winds can and do cause a lot of damage. Not to mention the fact that is messes up my hair! Ha ha

Bill Holland from Olympia, WA on February 14, 2020:

I've spent some time in the Midwest, and one thing I remember clearly is the wind. It always seems to be blowing. You guys need some mountains to block it like we have. :)

Oh, yes, by the way, I loved your poem. A warm breeze would be nice about now.

Jason Nicolosi from AZ on February 14, 2020:

Hi Ruby, I love it. I thought it to be very humorous in fact. Wonderful! Very well done.

Pamela Oglesby from Sunny Florida on February 14, 2020:

This poem does give you a rather funny scene in your head. I really like your poem and entertaining, plus funny.

Lorna Lamon on February 14, 2020:

I could picture this scene in my mind Ruby which made me laugh. Humorous and enjoyable - loved it.

John Hansen from Queensland Australia on February 13, 2020:

Great poem by you Ruby. Wonderful words that capture the reader. I always enjoy your poetry.

Eric Dierker from Spring Valley, CA. U.S.A. on February 13, 2020:

Delightful. You made me shiver with delight.

Verlie Burroughs from Canada on February 13, 2020:

Ruby I hear ya lady! Stay warm, and keep writing! As for Mr Wind, you've been caught. Give us poor mortals a break!

Umesh Chandra Bhatt from Kharghar, Navi Mumbai, India on February 13, 2020:

Crisp and spontaneous. A nice piece of amusing poetry.
