I love how it sounds one way in one ear

And another

In the other.

I hear it stirring the leaves on the trees and along down the driveway-- way off to the stream across the road where it will be carried to a distant place.

Drumming away on the skylight overhead, “shelter” becomes a sovereign concept--

A bright glow in a gray

Cloudy day.

A warm spot in a palette of cool colors.

Dogs at my feet breathe deeply in their sleep.

A steady reminder of safety.
