Rain pattering on the sky window,
The muffled quiet of falling snow.
Crickets and frogs in the cool of a fading fall evening.
Thunder in the distance.
The wind mourning a path around the eaves of the house while our wood fire snaps and crackles.
A song sparrow announcing the rising sun of the early summer day break.
Owls calling to each other through the trees.
The stuttered purr of a contented cat.
A haunting train whistle in the valley while I snuggle beneath the blankets.
A red-winged blackbird, from his perch on a cattail, announcing his territory during mating season.
Children giggling with pure delight,
The laughter of a stream tickling the rocks!
The constant farewell of the ocean as it waves goodbye to the deep.
