Silence

There is a commotion 

rising about me and within me,

A cacophony of speeding thoughts

 meaningless words,

exorbitance.

I feel we have lost the value of silence, stillness;

We have failed to understand

That it is only through silence

That we may listen.

Listen to the music

Of creation;

Of the earth, the sun, the stars!

Listen to the discord

Of the destitute;

The cries of change

And the constant trickle of the water.

There is far too much unheard

In the plague of noise;

For it is only through silence

That we may listen.
