little joys

I normally have my lunch in the bonsai garden next to my office...today as I was eating I heard a sweet music....I looked around for the source of music and couldn't find anything and the music had also stopped. Then again there was this sweet music and I noted that I heard the music whenever there was a slight wind. It was then, that I realized the source of music...it was not from any stereo or person. It was from the trinklets hung in the garden. They were made of hollow bamboo sticks and every time there was a wind, the bamboo sticks clashed against each other and formed the sounds like a drum and the hollow portion let out a sound like a flute... what a simple idea. Was amazed at the ingenuityy of our forefathers.
