Are we afraid of the silence?


Waiting is an opportunity
To become aware of the silent joy
Of the earth and the music of nature
Wind swaying tall trees over the red shrubs
and the deepness of the silence under that.
This is where everything that grows is born
Why drown in a noise called ” pop music”
Are we afraid of the silence?
Is the awareness there
a reminder of out confrontation with life.
See the leaves laughter as they reach out to us.
Hear how the birdsong blends with the silence
Remmember the hot dry common and the lark singing.
The natural world is still here if we remember to feel and hear,
