Daily Prompt – Opera

If you listen very closely as you take a walk

Taking those moments to listen to the park

You will find there is an opera in the wild

I have known this since a free and ranging child

Live these moments free from the stove top

From the oceans to the highest mountain top

The music rings out just waiting to be heard

From the bull frog to the owl; at first it seems absurd

Until you open your heart and really listen

Under the canopy of trees that shelter and glisten

It isn’t the animals that have forgotten how to sing

But it’s lost in our presumed complexity that we bring

There is a trust to regain though it remains unspoken

That trust is the music of life we humans have broken
