I can hear the hum of traffic
And the neighbor’s sprinkler
Tick-tick-ticking the grass seed
And the children leaving the daycare next door
Babbling about their days
Like so many little two-legged brooks
Car doors slamming
And the occasional buzz of an insect
Surprised by the summerlike weather
Into divebombing the early spring flowers
It makes me so glad that I remembered
To switch out one storm window
For a screen
Just yesterday

NaPoWriMo 2021 Day 26
