the noise of the night

Saturday, August 18, 2007

the leaves were noisy last night
anticipating a storm
knowing their days are numbered
they reveled in life

the morning found them spent and silent
chilled and resting
having escaped the final fall
so far

Noises of the night are scary. Especially when it is out in the country and you hear things including but not limited to: coyotes or "things" in fields! How about owls.....Don't get me started on bears :-)

Can you really ever get the "city" out of the girl? Even a (nearly) full week of camping couldn't break out 'lil Ms Anonymous!

LOL - I adore you Jan! And the answer to your question is --- hello, I went home twice to do my hair in the air conditioning! :-)
