I Listen To Silence

Updated on January 15, 2013

How Peaceful and Rare It Is

In the busy world that we live

With cell phones buzzing when they used to ring

A world where words are just constant chatter

Loud noises lead the way for a number of smaller noises to follow

I don't think there is a time in my day where I don't here some noise somewhere

Then when I go to sleep my wife and I do something unique

We crawl into bed and hold each other close

Wrapped in each others arms and listen to complete silence

No t.v. no radio

Even our heart seems to beat quietly so we can both drift off to dreamland

Where our thoughts are expressed in our minds and no noise disturbs it's clarity

Loving emotions rise and soon pleasure and peace become one

      I like quiet. Living in the city, there is always noise 24/7. Horns honking, car alarms going off, rumble radios blasting and jarring, people yelling and arguing, doors slamming, sirens screaming, lawn equipment growling, cars constantly going and coming. Only rarely can one hear a bird sing. There is never total quiet.

      Enjoyed your poem.
