Can’t you hear?

Can’t you hear?
The breath of wind
Flying through leaves
The rasp of cat
Tongue over fur
The water
Smooth ripples

Listen.

Can't you hear?
Fluorescent lights
Clicking on
Books
Pages crinkling
Skin on fabric
Fingers along pillow

Listen.

Can’t you hear?
Camera clicking
Moment captured
Fan whirring
Cool air spreading
Laughter
The kids across the street

Listen.

Can’t you hear?
The rustle of your shirt as we squeeze you
The joy that we wear when we see you
The happiness you cause

Listen.

Can’t you hear?
Now that you’re listening
Can’t you hear
All the people that care

Listen.

Can’t you hear
A reason to stay?

Listen.

A beautiful poem filled with hope and a promise that the small signals can hold such great wonder, I like that you have woven sights and sounds together, it makes a very vivid image, I enjoyed the read
Greetings
