stones crunching underfoot
poles tapping time like a metronome
birds tweet and repeat
a distant dog barks
stones crunch
poles tap
a kereru whooshes across the path
crunch crunch
tap tap
cars spit along nearby wet roads
a lawnmower discordantlty hums a summer song
stones crunch
poles tap
a passerby puffs a greeting
a bike approaches from behind
two tui chase in circles
stones crunch
poles tap
a brook babbles
a torrent gushes
wind whistles
raindrops whisper
still stones crunch
tap tap tap
the presence of a truck surprises on this private path
syncopation
tap tap tap
stones crunch
an aeroplane approaches
crunch
tap
the aeroplane is overhead
crunch underfoot
metronome
the aeroplane disappears
a fading melody
crunch
tap tweet
woof whoosh whisper
spit hum puff gush babble
whistle whine whir
a walking symphony

I just heard Tui wings clattering - and I'm staying near Antwerp.
(But...Vienna? You're a ways from home, mate...)
Thank you @Kiwi-family !
