We Three

The absence of sound in the landscape was deafening

                Before them lay a vast desert

      dotted with low lying deep green brush,

      trees contrasted by rust colored plateaus

and tall rock formations reaching for the bright blue sky

         In the distance lay purple-shaded mountains

Yet, at the front and center of this wide open space

                    there were three people

       A mother and her two young sons

     arms wrapped around each other

  The boys holding on tight to mom in the middle

  Their laughter and love roaring into the silence
