Wendy Blaxland – That Wind

For Wendy Blaxland, That Wind is a response to what happens in her immediate natural world. She writes, ‘we have had much wild weather here in Australia in the past few years, but are also blessed by a vibrant light which always uplifts me.’

That Wind

That wind we fear frees
          the old leaves from the trees
                    and sweeps the clouds on
                              to reveal the sky behind
                                        like a luminous blue eggshell.
