Native speaker’s answer

The definite article "the" is used here to make the nouns "wind" and "sky" specific. While the noun "wind" is often not made plural, it can be countable. Therefore an article can be used in front of both "wind" and "sky", and the definite article "the" is used to make them more particular.
