For all you people who are ready for Spring!


  Sitting By An Open Window

Whipperwills call,
Crickets chrip,
Silence....
Listen...
Owls hoot,
An airplane hums
In the night sky

For a moment
Silence...
Cooing doves,
The refrigerator
Drowns nature's sounds,

Listening still,
Howling dogs echo,
Crickets chirp,
A bird sings a sweet melody
A rooster crows
Crikets chirp in rhythem

Silence again...
For a moment, more chirping
I hear the growling of my tummy.

LOL! I am in the middle of summer, Sept (in NZ) and while it isn't much of a summer it is better than the winter that will soon be coming! (And we don't have owls - we only have little birds called Moreporks who have a haunting cry...related to owls - they look the same anyway)

Great poem!
