Sound Pollution - Poem by Elena Sandu

We have many moments
that we could call Unique
and Wonderful.
It reminds me of the day's
breaking this winter's silence.
Before 6 am walking on the snow,
I could hear only my steps
until a bird joined..
Then another and another,
and a tree would squeak,
and the wind would sing..
but one 'fancy' speeding car
forced us all
back to Silence.

    I hope it was not my Cougar 390. Well written and truthful rendering of our modern life.
    We have drowned out the beautiful sounds of nature. I wonder if the birds sing louder now
    to drown us out.

    This is a fantastic poem Elena.
    I like it really very much.
    Sometimes it are the small, small sounds that create the magic
    And yes, then a car and all is gone

    A super 10 for this one
