Stormy Weather

Yesterday I stood listening to the rain outside the open window.  I tried to differentiate and sort the many sounds:  water falling in a steady stream from the roof valley;  water dripping from one leaf to the next;  water falling from the sky to the shrubs and trees; high up and away the drumming of thunder;  rain splashing in the rock fountain, rain on the concrete walk, rain on the roof.  Such variety of sound!  And then a mockingbird sang.  And the wind chime moved in a breeze and gave off a thin piercing sound.  A ring-necked dove cooed.  An Orchestra !
