Just listening

Waterfall constant of arterial road
Craw of crow
Stoccato joy of small bird
Gentle percussion of foot
Sway of grass moved by I don’t know what
Warm presence of sunshine reaching through haze
Still attention of grass, blackberry, thistle, cow parsley this windless day
Swish of clothing
Soft rumbling of air as I press forwards
Accidental choir of different birds singing
Joy of colour attracting humming bees
Panting of dog and hello of owner
Hollow cowbell clang of barrier closing
Rattle and thud of machinery preparing ground …
I am listening to the day
