Soundscape

By Linda Buckley

Go outside, close your eyes

on a rainless dreary day

and listen

at first pine siskins may

dominate the soundscape

then you notice

undertones of snow melt

drizzling down drains and ditches

raven solos a quark from his perch

crows caw a cadenza

a jay jabbers his way into the mix

high in a hemlock

silhouetted against the sky

kingfisher opens his mouth

on the next rainy day

go outside, close your eyes

and listen!
