The Quiet Floresta

Source of Inspiration

Leaves shifting
changing form
painting the canopy
of the floresta
with a kaleidoscope
of Monet’s.

The floresta is never quiet.
It hums with insects
rattles leaves
coos, trills, sings
with our feathered friends
gurgles over rocks
whispers it secrets
to us as we lie
beneath branches
held high like
dancers on toes.

There are no garbage trucks
sirens, loud radios
autos, trucks, no people
shouting, talking, laughing
crying
so the floresta
seems quiet by comparison.

Yet for those who live within
the floresta is never quiet
yet somehow, it’s sounds
seem more honest
more real
and definitely
more serene.
