Can't you smell the just-cut grass?
The grass seems to grow as fast as it's
cut with all the rain we've been receiving lately.
Today, I was able to spend sometime outdoors,
listening to the chirps of the birds
and the buzzing of the cicadas
hiding in the leafy trees.
I watched the clouds float away
and cars roll by.
I saw the leaves of the trees
being shuffled by a light breeze.
I didn't see the grass grow while I was out there,
but I'm pretty sure by tomorrow,
I'll have noticed that too.
It was a good day,
being able to take in all of this
from my front porch.
