Whooshfulness

The ceiling fan droned on and on
about the fruit of its whirling
being a full blown relative to wind.
With the evidence breathing down my neck,
it was hard to deny some validity to the claim.
As the only witness, judge and jury
to the “whooshfulness” of this argument,
I accepted it as a techno cousin of a breeze,
but not enough oomph to be a sibling of a gale.

floots said...

even a fan is allowed a little whooshful thinking :)

our modern lives are filled with techno cousins. Hopefully we will never forget the true gales.

Wind (natural and artifically created) seems to be a theme running through your poems lately). I'm amazed at the way you bring the extraordinary out of the ordinary
