What my son hears....

It is the first beautiful day in some time.
It is one of those glorious days.
The sun is brilliant in a bright blue sky.
I sit in a rocker on my front porch. Oh! the pleasures of the porch.
I close my eyes and just listen. I am surrounded by sound.
Chatting and singing and coaxing their young.
The rustle of leaves is frenzied.
I am transfixed.
Why don't I hear this everyday? It is mesmerizing.
It transports me to another place far far away...
perhaps to where my son is.
I think of him everyday
and wonder what he see's
and hears.
I picture him...sitting on a porch.
His eyes closed...

I dedicate this post to my son Sean- nature enthusiast and future herpetologist. I love you son. You have opened my eyes and my ears. For that, I am forever grateful.
