Can You Hear It?

Can you hear it?

Of course you can’t

It is the hush
It is the quiet
It is the silence of the absence of
modern cacophony

No rumbling engines
No squawking phones
No electronic hum
to dull your senses

It is the quiet

Just the quiet

Stay with it for a while
Don’t be afraid
It can be beautiful

Can you hear it now?

The wind in the trees
The gurgling stream
The call of the loon

Even the rustling meadow

Just the quiet

Isn’t it beautiful?
