Windsong

Imagine a gentle breeze gliding over the landscape and ruffling through the casuarinas.  Lie back and think of being enveloped in a mellow mood, the resonance of wind through the trees.

The breeze catches through the casuarina fronds.

  1. I had to look up casuarina. The Wikipedia article about it says: “Casuarina is a genus of 17 species in the family Casuarinaceae, native to Australasia, the Indian Subcontinent, southeast Asia, and islands of the western Pacific Ocean. It was once treated as the sole genus in the family, but has been split into three genera (see Casuarinaceae).” Thanks for the into.

      1. Yes, it comes with a meditative overtone. I have a cousin who designs gardens and this aspect often comes up – for instance a grove of bamboo could have a syncopated sound, the rustle of beech leaves adds glissando or the gentle pitch of casuarina 🙂 Thanks for the reference to John Denver’s his Windsong album. That also brings me to think of his River deep, Mountain high 🙂 Whilst you’re out there in your rambles around Texas and beyond, do you have any particular reference to windsongs?
