Spin

Spin is an essence of movement; it is a moment in time frozen in balance and motion.  It draws out thoughts of weather movements like willy willies, cyclones, waterspouts and twisters. It balances on point, barely touching the ground like a ballerina. Its graceful arc gently bowing to the wind, playfully moving where the breeze takes it. It towers above you reminding you that the forces of nature are transparent but immense in their power.
