i did not

a few weeks ago when i was making dinner 
i looked out my kitchen window at the sink 
and saw brennan sitting on the little kid picnic table.
he must have snuck off outside while i was switching the laundry.
this is what i was thinking.
i went to go call him back inside for homework,
but when i opened the door i could hear zac.
playing guitar on his back steps and singing.
and that's when i realized that brennan was just sitting there in secret.
listening.
it was so quiet outside.
you couldn't hear anything else.
i don't know if i've ever seen brennan be so still ever.
and in the busy world he's growing up in,
i thought about how rare it is to just sit and listen.
i did not call him back to his homework;)

How sweet! I hope you left your door open, or even your window to listen along, too!
