The Wind - 372 Words
I am the Wind
I creep and crawl through every swamp and valley
Touching every leaf and holding every branch
Surrounding every rock and cooling every stream
Playing with the leaves that dance on my shoulders
I am the Wind.
I cradle nature's breath in my arms
Rocking it back and forth
Singing to it my sweet lullaby
Kissing its tender face with my gentle breeze
I am the Wind.
I instruct the tall grass to bow before me
Ruling over the leaves and governing...

wind - 511 Words
Winter storms don’t glide in gently on puffy white cumulous clouds, they barrel across the mountains like runaway freight trains, full of noise and bluster, prodded by the restless wind. Ski resorts don’t like to talk about wind–or storms in general—because it scares away the tourists, who somehow forget that winter is messy, cold, and wild, as if snow were laid down softly each night like a blanket over a sleeping baby. But wind is a fact of life in the mountains, as much a part of the weather...

Turbines: A Wind-Wind Solution
The majority of energy comes from nonrenewable fossil fuels such as coal, natural gas, and oil. Americans depend on this energy in almost every way imaginable; from cooking to cleaning, from working to traveling, to heating and cooling. Wind is a byproduct of solar energy; the uneven heating of the air over land and water creates wind as warm air rises and cool air rushes in to take its place (Bezdek, 29 Oct. 2013). Although some people tend to dislike the...

Wind Trasportation - 2074 Words
Movement of particles by the wind takes place by a combination of direct wind shear stress and atmospheric turbulence. There are three modes of sediment transport by wind: creep or reptation; saltation, and suspension (Fig. 1). The mode of transport depends primarily on the ratio between particle settling velocity, and hence particle size, and wind shear stress and turbulence intensity. Very small particles (<20 microns) are transported in suspension (tens of km or...

ODE TO THE WEST WIND
The autumnal west wind sweeps along the leaves and "winged seeds." The seeds will remain dormant until spring. The wind is thus a destroyer and a preserver. The west wind also sweeps along storm clouds. It is the death song of the year. With the night that closes the year will come rain, lightning, and hail; there will be storms in the Mediterranean and the Atlantic. The poet pleads with the west wind to endow him with some of its power, for he feels depressed and...
