Sound...

This piece was a challenge issued on 6S between 5 members about the human senses, each of us taking a sense... Enjoy! - CJT

They say a picture is worth a thousand words, but a single sound can leave you speachless.

You heard your mother's labored breath as you entered the world.

You heard your heart beating fiercely when hiding as silently as possible from your friends in a game of hide-and-seek.

You heard the sobs that escaped your lips as your husband gave your daughter away on her wedding day.

You heard the joyous laughs and giggles of your grandchildren as they happily played at Thanksgiving.

Now, you struggle to listen and can only hear the sound of silence as you watch your life fade into the wrinkles of time.
