Nature's Cacophany

Written by: linda smith

Sitting by the crackling fire,
the two of us
alone in the dark.
The frogs' chorus
pierce the night air.
The solemn hoot
of the lonely owl, startles.
The heat carries the embers
and smoke to the heavens.
I watch the flames
dance across your lovely face.
The light reflected 
in your eyes.
We sit together
listening to nature's cacophany
enjoying  the night's spoken words.
Our silence communicates
one to another.
