Listen! #fiction

You should listen more, mama says. Listen, listen, listen, the child hears. Listen to the birds, listen to the wind, listen to the trees calling you to play. Listen to the sky calling up a summer storm, listen to the cicadas chirping of storm’s end. Listen, listen, listen.

But you’re not listening, mama cries. The child smiles serenely.
