Did you hear
The rose burst into bloom,
The leaf crash to the forest floor,
The sun splash into the sea?

Did you hear
The smile break across your child's face,
The moon blast over the mountaintop,
The clouds scurry across the sky?

Did you hear
The snowflakes bomb the quiet countryside,
The hummingbird dip the flower's nectar,
The pebbles tumble down the meadow stream?

Did you hear
The trumpet of another dawn
The roar of absolute solitude?
Were you listening?
