Summer Sounds


The afternoon summer breeze runs over and under tree limbs, tousling tree leaves
with a delightful sound.

Nearby, moth wings are battling a screen door, striving for the low kitchen light just out of reach.

A neighbor’s dog is whining and scratching at the door, again.

Further, softer, cows, in the pasture, lowing to each other.

In the distance, car tires hum like something alive.

And, I sit here with a beer in my hand, legs thrown over a wooden railing,

listening. . .

Listening – the best of life.
