The section of park that grows wild and free gets my attention. Meandering through the field, I’m delighted by a strong sweet fragrance.
The highway noise in the background is still prevalent…it is only one mile away you see, but that’s okay, I can tune it out. I can leave that concrete jungle behind and drown myself in nature. I anxiously so want to immerse myself.
I sit in front of an awkward pine and take in the moment slowly. There is a very loud cricket near me and he keeps me company.
Suddenly, a herd of wrens surround me, protesting sharply at my presents. Each one shouting loudly at the same time. But they are gracious and after a few minutes they let me be.
Thank you wrens.
