Morning sounds

As I lay here before sunrise, I can hear layers of sounds that are becoming familiar the longer we stay here.

First the sound of insects outside our window. And a small chirping gecko. Then the thick layer of morning birds. I imagine they are the colours of bright graffiti.

Past the insistent sound of birds are the cries of livestock. Roosters, sheep, goats, cows, horses. My neighbour said her run yesterday included chickens running alongside her.

In the far distance there is another sound. A deep guttural sound that I think is a howler monkey.

The mornings here are not quiet but somehow they areĀ  peaceful all the same.

Good morning Nicaragua!
