Silent Waiting

Silent- WaitingBoth kittens
sitting in attention
staring at the wall
waiting without a sound

Other days
I’ve heard a mouse
behind that wall
scurrying loudly.

The kittens must hear it now
even if I can’t.
So I too,
sit in attentive Silence
waiting for what I believe to be there
but cannot hear today.
