Five Minute Friday – today’s prompt is ‘song’. Join us by linking up at Lisa-Jo’s.
GO:: My first thought – I can’t sing, at least not out loud. I pretty much always have a song – more acurately a tune – in my mind.
Here in the Philippines, there are so many songs – all happening at once.
there are the roosters.
the occasional siren.
kids singing. kids talking. kids playing
and always, always multiple fans.
rain on a tin roof. [marvelous]
[every once in a while all the other song sounds diminish enough to hear] the birds’ songs.
I love hearing birds chirping, singing their heart song. there are so many different birds here.
my brain and ears get tired sometimes. other times it has just become ‘white’ noise.
Last weekend we got to spend time out in the tribe for 4 days, there the overall song was so different, more like home [in some ways, in others it was still a world away].
there were waves crashing – day and night.
adults speaking in different languages.
kids singing. kids talking. kids playing.
kids speaking in different languages – in play and work.
and so many, many birds. all with a different song.
there were times we could hear the breezes rustling in the coconut tree leaves.
and the rain gently falling. or dumping.
it was blissful.
I look forward to the sounds of home. Similar in some ways yet so very different, but they will all be familiar. ::STOP
