Sounds of Life

June 14, 2010
the rain isn't letting up.
the baby isn't done crying.
your mother spoke words of incouragement as you enter
the unknown.
growing up isn't just two words
growing up is a lifetime continuous action.
and the things you hear now, you will hear tomorrow.
and the things you heard twenty years ago, you will say today.
the rain is still falling.
but the baby is laughing, telling a joke.
and the grandmother is telling her how smart she is.
and you listen to all of this before you, as if your life all happened yesterday.
