Listen.

Listen

Listen to the sound of a soft shadow 
creeping across the landscape 
blurring the mountains .
 
Listen to the sigh of a day in limbo
like a held breath when all is stilled
no voices raised.
 
Listen to the sound of a solar eclipse
no birds sing in the trees,no lambs bleat 
even the sea is still.
 
Listen to the silence.
Then the sun brings light and laughter back.
And birdsong fills the air again.
