Garden Musings: Listen


In this moment,
there is the silvery sound of wind chimes,
a soft breeze,
birds chatting,
the rustling of leaves.

Raucous chirping now.
Someone must be telling a funny story.
What would that be in bird?
The worm that got away?
The squirrel that fell off the bird feeder?
The gardener broadcasting seeds in plain view?

We’ll show her!
