Listen – A Poem by Julie Cook

In Inspiration by jan_mfp

Listen

Can you hear it?
The sweetest sound
comes near the end.
Start with ears
big enough to
let in a river.
After the first rush
(if you are very still)
you will hear it:
a pure silver voice,
arrow-straight for
your heart.
You could drink in that sound
all day.
One note,
then another,
another—
Each
singular
raindrop
turning parched land
to Paradise.
Listen closely.
Can you hear it?

–Julie Cook
