One Cloudy Windy Evening

One cloudy windy evening
Girls twirled atop a hill
They spun in the waning light
Then they were still

“Voiceless it cries,
Wingless flutters,
Toothless bites,
Mouthless mutters.” 
~J.R.R. Tolkien

I had a lot of fun taking these photos... standing on a road does always add that other element of "Quick get off a car is coming." Which invariably happens just when I have got everyone standing right where I wanted them. Which is what happened with the above photos. Perseverance... If at first you don't succeed try, try again!

Sunshine is delicious, rain is refreshing, wind braces us up, snow is exhilarating; there is really no such thing as bad weather, only different kinds of good weather.
~John Ruskin

That feeling of fresh air
Battering my face
The wind in my hair
As I continue to race
Until I come home
To my home, my safe place

Who Has Seen the Wind?

Who has seen the wind?
Neither I nor you:
But when the leaves hang trembling,
The wind is passing through.

Who has seen the wind?
Neither you nor I:
But when the trees bow down their heads,
The wind is passing by.

~Christina Rossetti

The sunlight pours down
Through a rift in the cloud
Yet the sun still is hidden
Wrapped in a grey shroud

All about, but cannot be seen,
Can be captured, cannot be held,
No throat, but can be heard.

A Riddle: A cloud was my mother, the wind is my father, my son is the cool stream, and my daughter is the fruit of the land. A rainbow is my bed, the earth my final resting place, and I'm the torment and saviour of man.  

The answer is not WIND ...(yes that is the answer to the other riddles but not this one).... "Wind is my father".... what am I? 
Have a guess?
