I believe nature has their own parties and we don’t even know its happening around us.
Today was wind dance day for sure!
And what a party it was!!
If anyone has ever been in New England during fall there are lots of secret party days going on between the leaves, the trees, and the animals. It is the most spectacular time of year here.
And on wind dance day it is the most extraordinary thing to watch.
Most of the leaves begin while on the ground; you’d think they are done falling.
Then the wind starts her flirt with a tiny little tune and the slow dance…
The leaves feel it inside and begin a little sway…
They are hypnotized by her tease while she picks up the pace.
Several catch the beat and pop like pop corn kernels in a pan of oil as the wind moves from side to side with the dance. More leaves join in and toe tap, twist and shuffle. Couples join in to swing and flip while others sizzle with Salsa and Merengue. A little tap, a little jazz, a little jitterbug, then ballroom and some crazy street head spins you ever have seen.
The party starts quick and lasts all day long! Swirls of red, gold, and orange blow and twist in the air. Such excitement creates tornadoes of color. There’s a beat that we can’t hear that they feel and celebrate.
Every leaf joins in with free form; twirling and swirling, flying from the ground up and from the trees down. The wind is playing a mighty powerful song and the leaves can’t resist the beat.
Then as quickly as she comes, the wind blusters past her partners like a fickle girlfriend.
And then they once again fall to the ground and sit there lifeless. Hoping she’ll come back to dance.
