Music :
This weeks prompt for One Deep Breath is music.Here are my attempts at the prompt.

Whispering wind
thru the forest canopy
Mother Natures speaks.


Cicada's sing
Summer glee club chorus

in 4/4 time.

Raindrops falling
pitter & patter on a tin roof
Heaven's snare drum.

The move is very close for me anyway ;vince will come back and stay here till the house sells. We still haven't sold our house here so vince and I will drive to PDX starting Sunday AM a lot of 12-15 hour days in the car . I have to be there Wednesday for interviews at 11:00a and 2:00pm . So if you all don't mind say a little prayer or two that we have a safe journey and that we sell the house here.I am not sure of the route yet it will either be thru Denver,WY,ID or up thru SD, and MT,ID . Which way would go ? Driving time is about the same.
I am feeling lots of emotions right now. I am very excited,a little scared but ready for a change and oddly enough I have figured out that I do miss work. I guess I thrive on Stress. The main contenders for houses to buy in our price range or in Gresham,OR ,Milwaukie,OR , and Vancouver ,WA. If for some reason next week I am lax about posting or miss the ODB prompt you know it is because like Willie Nelson says "oN the Road again"LOL.
I will take plenty of pics along the way to share.

Great haiku, too. Mrs. Fetched loves rain on a tin roof too.
