Leaving a Trail

Twelfth Night
swept away in a gale,
leaving behind a trail
of twigs and branches.

    Gale – another word for or different than a thunderstorm? High winds rattling the tree tops can make one dizzy for the staring at them!

    Just a strong wind – Force 8 (or above) on the Beaufort scale, may or may not include rain and thunder!

    Wonderful hidden stone. I took my tree out on the 11th night ( a day early I know) and left trail through the living room, down the drive and onto the street.

    I’ve written a small stone about the wind too. It does fire up the imagination, doesn’t it. 🙂

    This is also lovely. I’m taking my tree down tonight, alas (I’m in the states, so we’re a day behind you). Cheers.

    It could be a story about the last life of a Christmas tree on the Twelfth Night, or it could be a story of a wind storm on the Twelfth Night! Like the dual possibilities in this one!

    Yes, so true but why do storms and such like hold such a large import if they happen at a ‘festival’ time?

    I’m thinking of Twefth Night as well, – the Epiphany of a new season, the feast behind us.
