The Call

Did you hear the whispers?
Leaves rustling in the wind
Mouth pressed to ear
“Get ready, lay plans, gather knowledge,
Change is in the air.”

Did you hear the talking?
Murmur of the river
Talking at the cooler
“Learn it, practice, money where your mouth is,
Change is coming soon.”

Do you hear the shouting?
Thunder in the heavens
Shaking by the shoulders
“Step up, stand up, move is not a metaphor,
Or the next Call that comes may break you.”

About Sparrowhawk

From the West Coast of the United States. Prefers to be a poet but will occasionally exhibit signs of madness and death. Everything is apparent for those who have eyes to see.
