The Pause that Refreshes

Phone is ringing off the hook,

fax machine is gearing up,

and the copier groans

and the shredder whines,

and the people qeue-

all clamoring for my attention.

 

The view out the window beckons me.

 

Standing on the river bank

a new cacophony of sounds-

birds trilling their sweet songs,

squirrels are chattering high in the tree-tops

water gently laps against the shore,

the pause between each sound

is silence, blissful silence.
