Silence Returned – A Poem…

Susurrus – definition: a soft murmuring or rustling sound; whisper

Silence Returned


The gun shot exploded into the air

Tranquility shattered for an instant

Birds squawked and flew up in alarm

Scurrying paws rustled leaves and undergrowth

Clamoring for safety and shelter

The blast’s echo diminished

Quiet was restored

Noses poked out of burrows

Birds returned to their roosts

Small animals emerged

The wind whispered

Peace revisited the forest
