early morning sounds

Friday, July 19, 2013

Early morning is definitely my favorite time of the day. Everything feels so fresh and new. It is as if the flowers are stretching as they look forward to another day of sun and a drink of water.

and although I love all of the sights of early morning, one of the best things is the sounds of early morning in my neighborhood. 

the singing of birds.

the chirping of cicadas.

the hum of a lawnmower.

the laughter of a family as they eat breakfast on their screened porch.

the swish of tires as a bicyclist rides by. 

the thump of a newspaper as it hits a front porch.

the peaceful drone of an airplane as it passes overhead. 

Yes, I love the sounds of an early morning summer day.

They speak of continuance and of promises. 

I wish I could bottle them up to savor on a cold winter day.

  1. You are SO right! I love those sounds too. I never really thought of it that way before. Those are all missing during the winter aren't they? Thanks for the mental images you gave me.

  2. I enjoyed this post! You have a good way with words.


  3. Laura, I understand what you mean about bottling something summery for a winter's day. I have a dvd of my brother and his friends playing baseball, it was after my nephew came home from war. I see young people , kids, and my family. I can hear swings and people laughing. I love to watch this on a winter day. Take care. Enjoy your weekend. xoxo,Susie

  4. I'm usually more of a visual person, but you've inspired me to try to "tune in" more to the sounds on my morning walks.

  5. Gorgeous post. I love the mornings too. I so looking forward to them where we are going. I remember them when we lived near there once before and they were great!!!


  6. Lovely flower photos! I too love early morning...

  11. You have written this post so beautifully and have captured the sounds of morning so nicely. Early morning is the best time of the day.

  12. Beautifully expressed. I love early morning sounds, as well. And maybe, just maybe, if this terrible spell of heat and humidity has broken, I will be able to open the windows and hear them again!

    Thanks so much for joining in this week.

  17. Hi Laura,

    So nice to meet you!! Well, what can I say? Early morning, even though I am a night owl, is MY favourite time of day as well, even if I am sleep deprived, I love everything you so sensitively observed about this most fresh and hopeful time of day! Thanks so much for sharing. Looking forward to catching up with some of your posts! I was born in Toronto; whereabouts did you live while you were in Ontario?
