Good one, Hank!! The rough winds of summer blow us all a little off course.
This is beautiful Hank :D so deep and so profound!!
true & a perfect title...
Alas, many are left deflated despite good intentions.
There is more than one meaning in this poem, Hank. It can be read on different levels.
I enjoyed the metaphor I found here....when we are led astray we can end up tangled in those branches.
Rough winds can indeed steer us off course..like a helpless little leaf
Rough winds can cause many a balloon or person to stray indeed
Ha! A good warning to flighty types, Hank
Sometimes, I feel like that spent balloon. Good point made.
An interesting - and layered - extended metaphor, Hank.
Excellent one Hank.Yvonne.
I've been lead astray but cannot blame the wind.
love the image it created, Hank :)
Oh this is really good Hank. We def are having a rough summer and are being led astray.
Well summed up.
