It's great. Really enjoyed it. Evokes music, actually. The use of the wrought iron bench seems to indicate "faith" or something extremely solid like "belief".

Building something newer is felt as real accomplishment, and the heavens water the scene with approval. Write some more. ("noisy" not "noisey")
