Air Games

The wind is playing games today

hide and seek

going still

until coats stifle

and then pouncing

nipping ears and noses

tugging at cloth edges

poking icy fingers

to shock the skin

Giving a makeover

with too much blush

raking ungentle fingers through hair

flying it like a flag

then flinging it in faces

The wind is playing games today

an unruly child

in need of a time out

About Caitlin Stern

I have a MA in English, and have so many fantasy/urban fantasy WIPs it's not even funny. I'm an avid reader of science fiction, fantasy, mystery, romance, biography, fiction, and anything else that catches my interest. I collect books, and bookmarks I find that are visually appealing and useful.
