I just experienced the earth’s last breath of the day
White noise, leaves rustling, endless, monotonous hypnotic
Then slower, and slower, and then, subtly and suddenly, silence
Overwhelming, deafening, still… silence
Less than a minute, then another breath
Rustling, deep, full, then receding, and then again, silence
In and out
The last breaths of her day
Did you miss it?
Slow down to her pace
All is done
All is in balance
Tomorrow is another day
