Turn off the sound
garbage truck grinding
Canaries sing trilling songs
babies laughing, symphonies playing
our lover whispers, “I love you,”
yet we hear nothing
but our own silent thoughts.
S ound weaves life into our day
I nvoking feeling both bad and good
L isten carefully to life’s symphony of sound
E ach sound a gift
N otice what role sound plays in your life
C an you hear the angel sing?
E njoy the sounds of nature—a daily gift we often ignore
