On the Front Porch

I finally made it to the front porch today and here I am. The sun has set but it's not dark yet. The trees on the horizon are dark but the sky is still light above them. A breeze is stirring the baskets of ferns and the wind chimes. The newly hatched house wrens are being rocked to sleep. I just heard from the horse in the pasture next door and two different birds are saying vespers. I have always loved this time of day. The crickets and other night creatures are starting to make noise. Are they quiet all day or are we just to busy to hear them?


  1. You write so well that I see, hear, and smell the experience with you. Wonderful reflections!

  2. My thoughts exactly! I was just wishing I was there.
