Have You Ever Caught the Wind?

While digesting the poem “Who Has Seen the Wind?”, you will surely find what Christina Rossetti expressed in the Victorian period is very true. She wrote about the earth’s breath like this:

 

Who has seen the wind?

 

Neither I nor you:

 

But when the leaves hang trembling,

 

The wind is passing through.

 

It is not really possible for anyone of us to disagree with this well-known English poet. However, it does not necessarily mean that we can just let the wind blow by and witness how this naughty boy plays tricks on the lovely trees and flowers. We can actually take the initiative to catch it. I can never forget the day I caught at the arms of the wind in a forest for the first time. It was a gorgeous sunny afternoon at Stanley Park, Vancouver’s urban oasis. Being encouraged by my friends, I became courageous enough to manage the movement of two wheels with my feet on the pedals. Riding down the narrow stone path like the wind, I flew hand in hand with the wind in the sky. I could clearly hear what it whispered but not any other kinds of sound.

On the way to the lake in front, it even took my straw hat up to the sky and presented it to the hidden stars as a gift when I was embraced by the leafy green. Not until I left my bike and collected my hat at the beach near the lake could I notice the wind’s gift. This mischievous boy had stored the freshness of maples in my hat. How amazing it was! This unforgettable experience has made me fall in love with cycling. Cycling gives me the chances to catch up and continue to have fun with the wind at my hometown.

I am really glad to have the Tseung Kwan O South Waterfront Promenade next to my home for me to go cycling with my family and friends. In my leisure time, I always go there by bike and free myself from the exhausting city life. When I try to catch the wind as what I did at Stanley Park, I feel like meeting an old friend. Every time, this lifelong friend brings me different kinds of gifts from the nature including the blue secrets of the ocean and the sweet lollipop of the cloud. I do love all the presents given by this companion.

Have you ever caught the wind? It’s now your turn~
