Clouds puff the ocean blue sky
Birds chirp, warble, and squawk
changing location from tree to tree.

The breeze rises, unsettles yellowing leaves,
pushing them toward the earth
a tingle to the skin as it musters.

Faint drone of airplane overhead
periodic passerbys with their dog, book, or friend
cars move the perimeter, mostly sight unseen,
swooshing mixes with fun-loving shrieks.

Is there a scent, a smell?
Fresh, just fresh.
An embracing sensory experience
a few moments like a natural eternity.
