lonely pinwheels in open spaces

embracing the wind
on their blades

I might have written:

stabbing the wind
with their blades

But your image works too!

No Windmill Here!

thanks for the suggestion! I think it works very well too. I was thinking, the windmills would love the wind on their blades, thus the word "embrace". :)

i appreciate your comment, thanks!

I like this. A modern take on the windmill and all it means. Well done.
