Silence Returned – A Poem…

November 28, 2013

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

Silence Returned

Glen

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

  1. 2 R’s, 3 S’s, 3 U’s. Who knew you could make a word from those letters? 🙂

    Nice poem. The first line was a shock, given the title, though it clearly fits in.
