Symphony of a Rainy Morning

White-throated sparrows chirping about through the rain drops,
A steady patter of cool rain dancing on vibrant Autumn leaves,
Twigs cracking, and leaves rustling as little creatures scurry about in the underbrush,
And the sound of each drop rippling into a meandering stream.

A symphony so ordinary,
Yet so extraordinary,
Each movement telling a story,
All different parts working together,
Creating a mosaic of Nature,
Ending with the crescendo of life.

Autumn by the Sea

Sun beaming through the clouds,
Cold wind cutting sharp as ice,
No sounds to be heard but the crashing of the waves,
Solitude and peace.

A far cry from the chaotic Summer,
The placid Autumn gives new life to weary souls,
Tired from the grind, yearning for escape.

Granted only by the birds and the sea,
In those moments, we are truly free.

White-throated Sparrow

This time of year, many birds often find their way toward this area. It is the perfect addition to an already magical time of year! This wonderful White-throated sparrow is my first of (hopefully) many bird pictures I will take over the next few weeks. Be sure to check social media and the blog for more soon!
