Slice of Life - Symphony of Sounds

symphony of sounds
pitter patter
steady rain
grumble rumble
thunder moving through
chirp chir-chir-chir
tweet tweet tweet
birds singing
steady sounds
relaxing moment
before the next wave 
of my day

I got home today to an empty house, let my dogs out, and decided to sit with my notebook in my garage.  It's interesting how much I can notice and gather in a few simple moments.  I wasn't sure how to capture different bird sounds but as I tell my students, try your best.

  1. This is so true! I love your poetic words and especially your, 'try your best.'

  2. This is the soundtrack of home today. One day I will be posting the soundtrack of my neighborhood. Birds are the hardest to put into words.
