When the wind blows and the rain lashes our emotions can become dulled and our thoughts depressed but sometimes these swirling conditions can excite and invigorate. Whether we shut the door physically or delight in watching nature's displays, we cannot ignore the weather. It’s the natural topic of conversation for the British. Summer breezes and spring showers can elevate our senses bringing a thump to the heart, a grin to the face and an abandon to immerse yourself in nature's ever changing wonders.
For poets these elemental forces that signal change can often inspire. Muses summon themselves and through brain, heart and pen a myriad of expressions are revealed to a poet and capture his thoughts and views upon these transitory natural forms.
