Empty Neighbors

Daisy and I walked our morning route through our small circle.

A family moved out Saturday.

A family of lively, noisy boys.

Bikes, balls, bats, toys of all styles and sorts littered the driveway and yard daily.

Wheels screeching,

Voices squealing,

Giggles, fighting, laughing, yelling.

Army games whizzing through the bushes and surrounding yards.

We’d find them in our bushes hiding from the enemy.

All summer long

Day and night.

It now sits pristine…

And silent.

The neighborhood not quite the same.

Was this the hole felt by our neighbors when we left?

Did we take all our lively noise with us

Leaving nothing but empty silence…

Empty neighbors?
