Warm Morning in a Desert Suburb

Hummingbirds, goldfinches, mourning doves, the brush of a broom on concrete, a single-engine prop plane circling for a few minutes, scattered wind chimes, a distant truck warning its reverse, more hummingbirds, more goldfinches, a motorcycle roar from the far highway, more mourning doves, nearly constant wind chimes from one walled yard, door slams, tick of lawn sprinklers, truck backing up again, the prop plane returning and droning away again, more mourning doves cooing, more goldfinches whistling, one tree full of goldfinches, and also something else, an unknown species, singing.
