silence in the morning

how can
the silence
so hard won
contain
unobtrusive
so much
sound

the cocoon of morning
surrounds me

quiet
and warm

but the rooster
is a distant chorus
refrained

the wattlebird

quok

exclaims

while the magpie
as always at this time
wardles comfort
that somehow adds
to the idea I hold
of silence

silence
in the morning
