Slice of Life: No More Silence 16 of 31


No More Silence 
Pushing
the front door
open
I notice
immediately.

Something
is different.
The silence -
gone.

The sound
of nothingness,
endless quiet,
replaced
by the sweet chorus
of birds,
chirping happily.

A melody missed
for months.

For the month of March I will be participating in the March Slice of Life Challenge hosted at Two Writing Teachers.  It will be a busy month of writing, commenting, and learning with this community.  This year I've decided to try to focus my writing around happiness.  Stop by today's link up to join the conversation or find some great reading.
