Psithurism: The Wind in the Trees

One of the best new words I’ve come across is Psithurism:

Psithurism: (n.) the sound of the wind through trees.

Even the sound of the word pronounced perfectly describes the way wind moves through the trees in a quick and fluid sound.


It’s the rustling of leaves breaking the stillness of the forest.

It’s the easy breeze of grass blowing in the wind all across the Earth.


Wind currents around the world.

Wind currents around the world.


Go step out into the forest and hear it!
