Listen

Do you ever just sit still and listen to the sounds around you? I do, especially here in our house in San Miguel de Allende.

This afternoon........

The next-door roosters are crowing. These Mexican roosters love to crow, 4:00 AM, 6:00 AM, 3:30 PM, anytime.

Oh.....there is the turkey on the other side of us with his gobble, gobble.

The sparrows in the vines of the patio chirp and chip. A big gabfest, with lots of company arriving and finding a place in the vine.

Clank, clank, clank....the iron worker across the way is hammering out a new chair or table or maybe a door.

A truck with a ancient muffler lumbers down the street.

The almost teenager next door is playing some Mexican music.

Distant rumbles of thunder.

The pitter patter of rain on the tile roof....splat on the leaves......ta ta ta ta on the bricks now wet on the patio

The birds have fallen silent.

No cars or trucks on the street
Quiet....just the rain.
