I Hear...

I hear birds chirping outside. Sometimes a lot at once, altogether, sometimes only a few, sometimes maybe even just one.

I hear the soft purring of my cat Leroy as he lies on my chest, his breath cooling my chin. He looks at me through slitted, relaxed eyes.

I heard my window unit a/c kick on a minute ago and just heard it turn off.

Just heard a car door close outside, then a second, more softly.

I hear the murmured humming of my neighbor's air conditioner.

I just heard a dog bark once, then once more.

I hear happy peace.

This is what being with God is like.
