Sounds of Costa Rica

There is always a mariad of sounds in Costa Rica. I never get tired of listening to them. Today is no different. The river is running strong, making its water sounds. The birds are active with their mating calls.The dogs , not as loud as they usually are. The monkeys barking out their disapproval of noisy trucks (Me Too).No rain today, beautiful blue skies and cool weather.

Planning a trip to Playa Coco. A little time at Laura’s House. A nice B&B that is a block from the beach. Plus a pool I like to swim in.  We will go down to the water and walk up and down  the beach until we are thirsty and have a Margarita or two.Have an early dinner and call it a day. By four o’clock we will be in the pool. Just “Chillin” having a great time. How about you? Need time to relax. Go to xlibris and check out my books. Then take an afternoon and sit and read some poetry.

Pura Vida


Sound Of Costa Rica

It is four-thirty in the early morning and the sounds are alive

The Howler Monkeys are barking as the truck rolls by
The Toucan, Costa Rica’s colorful bird is whistling away

Oropendola’s sounds like an alien bay

This morning the dogs are busy

Barking at everything they see

Running in packs of three or four

Like the birds, doing mating calls

It is five in the morning and the ticos begin their day
Starting their motorcycles getting on their way

My dogs are restless and wish to go outside

Make some noise, show their animal pride

A couple of fisherman heading to the lake

Each has a fishing pole and some bait
As the rooster Cockadoos late
It is usually four-thirty he wants us awake

Colorful Parakeets, noisey little group as they fly by
Heavy rains last night made the river flow high

Developing small waterfall to trickle down

It is easy to live here and never frown

I like the sounds of early morning and the freshness in the air
Ticos walking to town with smiles to share

Tomorrow I think I will go to the lake

See if I can partake,
A little fishing and conversation
