As I mentioned earlier this week, with the sun shining and warmer temperatures I went outside yesterday to do some yard work. I was surprised that there were not as many downed limbs as there had been other years. I like being out in the backyard. It is peaceful.
There was a slight breeze carrying the sounds of nature to me as I worked. It really was relaxing
Sounds of Nature As I work picking up branches and limbs Downed by winter winds and heavy snows I am calmed by the sounds of nature. Do I hear birds in the trees Discussing the events of the day? No, I hear the cars and trucks Zooming down the road in front of our house. Do I hear the geese flying overhead as they journey northward? No, I hear the neighbor's truck, the one with the bad muffler that he parks in his driveway but keeps it running. Do I hear the sounds of the kids playing basketball in the park across the street? No, I hear our neighbor's father using his earth mover to even out the road between our houses. As I work in the yard picking up limbs and branches The sounds of nature assault my ears. (At least the lawn mowers haven't started yet.)
