January River of Small Stones - Jan 4, 2012

City Sounds

 City sounds greet the chirping birds in the elm tree outside the gate. The cold air still lifts the dry leaves which noisily swirl around the feet of the stroller. Quiet greets him, but he listens more carefully and hears the faint roar of traffic in the distance, the engines of a passenger jet making its way across the sky, and then the whistle of the Burlington Northern freight train passing through in the distance. As he passes on through, he hears the quiet melody of a neighbor’s wind chime. The city sounds here are soothing.

Beautifully observed stones for your river, I'll be back to feel them again.
