'Je voudrais être ce pauvre nègre et perdre mon temps' 

—Blaise Chandras, 'Bijou-Concert'


Outdoor Concert

 

It is warm 

The sun low 

Shapes distinct 

Colors vivid 

Shadows long 

I hear 

Wind 

A songbird 

More songbirds 

A fly 

More flies 

An unidentified sound 

It is enough, this.

Love it. I would put the last word in a separate line but that's just me.

Each line creates a new image. It is indeed a picturesque description of the auditory imagery.

Brilliant. Who needs more? The sounds of nature. The most relaxing and comforting sounds in the world. There is a feeling of serenity, in the short lines, which say just enough, no more. As you say: it is enough, this.
