listen real close

This morning while on my hike with Skagit I decided to stop in the middle of the trail and close my eyes to take a listen...

I hear a chickadee-dee-dee trailing off
a squirrel
the bitterroot
a soft wind
life moving around in the trees
many other birds that I don't know -
one high pitched chirp, and some that were low
and the most subtle of all...
the aspen leaves falling -
making their way back to mother earth who sustains them.

what do you hear when you listen real close?
