Morning sounds

Distant drone of cars on the highway

Chirping sparrow in my garden

A big metal bird

huffing and puffing

and lumbering to soar

Rustling oleander leaves

Almost inaudible

sound of a jet ski on the Bay

Humming refrigerator

Ticking clock

cooling oven

singing laundry

shower running

neighbor’s car stalling

Mom, where’s my homework?

Panicking kid

Sounds of a morning

I look up irritated

a harsh word bubbling in my throat

one look at the colors that surround me

blue skies, blue ocean

and red flowers

A deep breath

and switch to gratitude.

    It is hard to ignore those disturbing sounds in the morning but as you said ‘switiching to gratitude’ is always the best thing to do. Well written 🙂
