What is the sound of silence

Written by: Skyler Dawn

What is the sound of silence?
 The very essence of peace, serenity.
 The beautiful calmness that hovers about the air, gracefully falling upon anyone lucky enough to witness it.
 Lonesome, the quiet of the dark birds on a dreary day.
 The silence that hugs the smooth gentle wind
 Black crows circle the sky
 Fallen trees who could not withstand the lonesome cold silence
 Clouds envelope the skies above
 Puddles left over tears from the cries of the earth
 The last few leaves hang onto the dead branches, desperately clinging with whatever last bit of hope they can salvage.
