Song Description

i arrived home yesterday to the drone of leaf blowers and chain saws

the tone hovered steadily at the same pitch

angelic melodies quickly flooded my mind

one of those rare moments of pure beauty

i knew instantly i had to record it before it was gone

Pretty original concept!
I can almost smell the freshly mown grass. Nimbic suburbia beckons herein!

Nicely done Bill.

Smokey, this is great. At first I couldn't distinguish the choir from the two-stroke motors.

I can see you following an uneasy lawn crew around your front yard with an iced tea in one hand and a hand-held tape recorder in the other. That makes me smile from ear to ear.

Nice track.

I Love this one Big Brother : )
In the distance yes - next to the noisy things; not a chance of hearing the beautiful music you create. : ) JD would love this song too. He has a gardener's soul. I'll put it on the iPod so he can hear it.

Lots more time to enjoy the roses now, for you. : )
