Sounds Of Nature - Poem by Anne Jones

As I sit outside I take in all the sights and sounds of nature and my surroundings
It is hot and humid my clothing sticks to my body
The rays of the sun hit my face letting my skin feel the heat
A warm but steady breeze blows off and on making the branches of trees sway back and forth
Birds fly by singing their song of sweet tweets and chirps
Some gather in groups while others fly alone

I hear the chatter of conversation in the distance
Laughter of children showing excitement before jumping in the pool
The hum of engines as cars drive up and down the street
The barking of dogs who are happy to be outside enjoying a nice day after being couped up inside while their owners work

I look to the side and catch a delicate white butterfly passing me by
No sound to be heard
A butterfly always seems to be enjoying life
Steadily floating through the air
Moving its wings ever so carefully as it glides up and down
Makes you want to slow down and enjoy the beauty that stands before you each day only to whisper 'appreciate all the things you can see, feel and hear.'
