Outside my window

Crickets chirp, birds sing
Out my window it goes on
The bustle of people
The sounds of life I hear
Outside my window

I see people and animals
Cars and bikes
All going about their usual lives
I hear the children laugh
And the parents call

Mail hits the box
The sun shines though the glass
It lies on my pillow
Warming my face
Music drifts though the air

A melody lilts soft and sweet
Whispering through the winds
Drifting, rising and falling
It sweetens the air
A melody plays

Children and parents
Cars and bikes
Birds and crickets
Sun and song
I love the sound of Life

The last line really just brought it home for me---the sound of life? So simple yet...I don't know---how did you think of this? You never cease to impress!

Aw spirit!! You're too sweet!!! I contemplate things a lot, and I write them down, and when I think of all the things I hear out my window, it sounds......like life :-)
