Listen to the Summer

Looking forward to summer.

LISTEN! The nightly summer breeze runs over and under, 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. 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.
