hush

Winter cardinals

So much changed in so little time,
in this age of quarantine.
Things we never would have guessed.

Did you see that seismologists say
the earth’s crust has hushed a bit?
Her skin no longer inflamed by cars
and buses and trains and billions
of feet walking and dancing
and running and loping and
skipping across her back.

She is quieter.
You can hear the birds sing.
