Just Listen


Just listen

Turn it off and hear birds sing,
bat wings cling
wrap around
sounds of morning.

Beyond dewy hedge life rattling past
on bicycle wheels,
slices of conversation.

Whispering of leaves,
breezed through foliage
drifting under
crunching steps.

Shy birds chirp
in shifting shadows.
Crows arguing,
over some intriguing thing.
