The susurration of leaves falling in Fall
The pitter-patter of ambrosial raindrops
The whispers and whistles of the evening breeze
The swashing and swooshing of waves on the beach
Do you hear the rhythm in symphony of nature?
The squawking of sea gulls
The chirping of birds
The fluttering of butterflies
The howling of animals
Do you reckon the rhythm of living on earth?
The syllables and rhymes in verses of poem
The colors and tone in an artistic work
The plot and characters of a captivating tale
The leaps and tiptoes in choreography of dance
Do you fathom the rhythm in feelings and words?
The whimpering and babbling of angelic infant
The ranting and vanity of a fervent youth
The trepidations and gratifications of elderly
The ebbs and flows of a convoluted existence
Do you appraise the rhythm of a blessed life?
