Hush!

 

 

Be very quiet.

What can you hear?

 

The roof looking down

and the bricks breathing in.

 

Be very quiet.

What can you hear?

 

The green grass stretching

and the leaves changing colour.

 

Be very quiet.

What can you hear?

 

Warm blood rippling,

and bones touching skin.

 

Be very quiet.

What can you hear?

 

The beginnings of a voice,

the birth of a poem.
