Like the Wind

At a recent writers group meeting, we discussed the incorporation of description in writing. What's the right amount and when is it necessary?

I recommended "The Sky" exercise from Pumping Your Muse which offers promps that train us to practice writing description in one sentence.

Today's Prompt:

Show the wind in one sentence (each) using the following items.

  • dry leaves
  • long grass
  • snow
  • water
