The Silence - Poem by Nicole Alexander

the dark night croaks
crickets rub in a symphony mixed
with barks at cat fight's screech
teenager's revving engines
and siblings laughter
carry in the breeze
to adults on front porches
chatting up today's events
their chatter blends in
with a neighbor's call
to their children whose
jump rope swishes
to the bounce of a ball
a man turns to his wife
and says, ' hon, listen
to the silence' as
the frog croaks louder
and competes with it all
