Giggles, snorts, guffaws, outbursts of open-mouthed , squinty-eyed , stomach-grabbing laughter .
Birdsong, wind through trees, gurgling creeks , rustling of unseen creatures, crunching leaves in a silent wood .
Children shouting , teens bragging, girls whispering, lovers sighing, mothers calling to table.
The clacking of dominoes on a wooden table, pop and whoosh of a bottle top, Hank Williams, snoring dog.
Sweet sounds of life and love and hope .
