Oh brother wind, How you always play tricks,
Dancing through our hair and singing through leaves.
Oh brother wind, How you always teach us lessons,
Like which direction storms come from,
where smells are drifting from,
and how animals are moving through the forest.
We are constantly modeling for children, and we can help them drop into their senses at any time when outside simply by asking “Where is brother wind coming from?”
Sometimes the breeze is so soft that you can’t feel him at all, yet he is still there. Brother wind carries smells along his path.
Simply find a hair from your head and hold it up, the little hair can tell you where the wind is coming from.
Does the wind move in different directions during the day then during the night?
Play with Brother Wind, he always teaches us lessons.
