Rejuvenation Friday: To Listen in the Silence

To Listen in the Silence
By Erika Dyk

Friday afternoon.
The classroom, empty.

But shadows remain--
Of words,
Sentences,
Laughter,
Tears,
Conflict,
Growth.

Listening to the silence,
Really listening.
Remembering the past.
Looking to the future.

Friday afternoon.
The classroom waits in anticipation

If you're willing to listen.
