Summer Nights

The tale-tell sounds of summer nights…

Crickets chirping.

The hum of air-conditioner motors. 

A mixed-up bird, cackling.

Train horns at a crossing.

The steady drone of traffic,

People getting their ice cream.

Diesels engines coming to life.

The buzz of the street lights,

Telling us to head home.

The rumble of a Harley,

Waiting at that train.

An airplane coming in to land,

Bringing weary travelers,

Eager for bed.

Two toads who live in the flower bed,

Serenading us each night.

…these sounds I take for granted.

Are sounds you’ll never hear again.
