The thrash of the ocean waves against the stony cliff,
The drumming of a hummingbird’s heart as it laps in the nectar of a gulmohar,
The howl of the summer breeze as fruit laden mango branches sway to the moonlight’s music,
The crunch of the autumn leaves beneath my feet as I walk under a canopy of golden maple leaves,
The pitter patter of rain drops against the lotus leaf as they slip into the murky lake waters,
The splash of the frogs hopping on the marshy terrain during the humid monsoon,
The rustle of grass as it bends to the will of the tyrant winter winds….
Nature’s lullaby pulls me into a deep slumber even as I am surrounded by the bustle of the city.
