The Natural Give and Industrial Take

Blinding flash of white followed by a deafening thunderclap concussion, let the sonic wave roll over and fade into the distance

Click

Sudden rotten deadfall crash explodes my meadow tranquility

Buckle snap

Otherworldly vibrations of a million cicadas haunt the night

Car engine roars

A lonely loon tremolo echoes across still lake waters

Door slams, tires squeal

A woodfire crackles while dancing flames hypnotize

A cacophony of horns honk like mechanical geese

Raindrops steadily drum against a tent wall

Deep thumping bass chord of Harley-Davidsons in harmony

Wind rustles leaves

The radio erupts with percussive beats and screeching voices

Twig snap

Jacked up pick-ups with offensive decals belch black smoke when they gun it

Chirp

Red pulsing strobe lights accompany a barking staccato siren, let the bellowing ambulance pass by and disappear into the distance
