do trees talk

Do Trees Talk
and listen
do trees talk
a child’s question filled with wonder
and wisdom
let’s sit and listen
was my reply
quietly breathing, swaying we sat
listened with all our senses
eyes closed
and there it was
the voice of the trees
dialogue between them
as they breathed and swayed
leaves rustling
branches creaking
roots sighing
slowly we listened
heard the language only one can hear in silence
well, what do you think?
I asked her
Do trees talk?
I think they do
she said
we held hands and listened some more
