A mountain holiday or getting away from it all

I asked my kids
to turn down their pop/rock music
so I could listen
to the sound of the mountains.

"You can't hear the mountains.
You're mad mum," they said, as they
turned their music
up louder and louder.

I can hear them I said to myself as
I walked towards the mountains
breathing easily to the subtle rhythm of
rocks and scrub humming
slightly out of tune.
