For "B" - What I felt at 1:35 today


Loud silence settled on my ears. I closed my book and listened . .

. . . to the hum of a plane overhead echoed by the train's hum in the distance.

. . . the whisper of the trees as they spoke with the wind.

. . . the call of a blackbird, a magpie, and a chorus of geese.

Fountain sprays on a gust of wind. Fountain finds me.

Dabbled shadows flow over my table, sunlight filtered and comforting.
Leaves tumble and dance over asphalt, leaving invisible scars behind on the pavement.

It is Thursday and today I am alone but I feel surrounded by friends found in Nature. Touch this and feel the Creator's greatness. Feel this and be not alone.

What a beautiful description, Annie. I often get so caught up in trying to capture the moment with a photograph or use the quiet time to journal and completely miss out on the sounds surrounding me. I'm glad you were blessed with the sounds of nature to keep you company.
