First Walk with Hearing Aids

Click, clack
Click, clack, click
Click, clack
Click, clack, click
On a steady morning walk -
Got a rhythm going
Hearing aids in
And yes, I'm "strollin'"
Click, clack
Click, clack, click
Noisiest coat in the world.
Rain drops falling
Click, clack, thunk
Click, clack, clunk
Thunk, click, clack
Yes - The noisiest coat in the world.
Forget it.  Focus.
Enjoy the beat
Feel the rhythm
Listen to the tweets
Birds?  Cool, that's sweet
Tweet.  Click.
Clack.  Thunk.
Tweet.  Clack.
Click.  Clunk.
Engines ever revving
Bus burps and roars
Noises from everywhere
Just walk.  Don't pause.
Roar.  Click.
Growl.  Thunk.
Burp.  Tweet.
Rev.  Clunk.
Cold crisp morning
Breath hangs in the air
Echoes in my ear drum
Like a symbol and a snare
Loud conversation -
Don't look back.
Scrape of the foot
Catch a puddle with a splat
Breathy bash
Puddle splash
Click, clack
Click, clack, clunk
Got a pace going there
And enjoyed the view
Tiny terrier yaps
Yes, I heard you - thank you!
Yap.  Bloody yap.
Click, thunk, clack.
Keys at the ready
As I get to my door
Clang & bang as they jangle
And pick the paper from the floor
Even newspaper's noisy
Rustles loudly - what a pain.
Hearing aids - OUT
For quiet sanity again
No more click, no more clack…

So true. Well observed. I love the increasing accumulation of the sounds.
