The sound of silence

is missing as Fall draws near

“Close the window,” says Keelin. ” It’s noisy.”

So, we shut out the Holiday noise


of leaf blowers, while we wait for our fall to snow from the birch trees in the backyard.  Coming down and nestling


within the last of the blooms while the sun lowers on the horizon


and shines through, bringing them back to life.


While the weed whackers drone, we put those sounds with the plane


right over our heads as we admire the sky which hid from us all summer.


and moves us on toward winter and soft sounds where the snow comes down


and all of our neighbors’ hard work will be covered.  Until they bring out the leaf blower and blow away the beautiful white, silent snow.
