Daily Prompt: Rhythm

Rhythm is something we share in common, you and I, with all the plants and animals and people in the world, and with the stars and moon and sun, and all the whole vast wonderful universe beyond this wonderful earth which is our home.

-Langston Hughes, The Book of Rhythms
Daily Prompt: We are rhythmic beings, sleeping and waking, falling ill and being well, vacationing and working, exerting and resting. For a week, identify rhythms around you. Waiting for a bus, watch how people walk. Sitting in traffic, notice the surge and pause of cars. Reading, listen to your breath. Notice a bird in a particular tree at a particular time of day. Nod to the office worker who lunches at the same cafe as you.
