The Sound of Silence

A Triple Tanka

the art of sitting

still enough to hear hot blood

pulse through relaxed veins

heart open as wide as ears

there you hear the unspoken

some call it reading

between the lines in the space

where dark night meets day

and vast sky meets solid earth

in the gap you dwell astir

all difference lost

the utter peace of surcease

instead of your noise

listen to the world listen

complete in symbiosis

    "There you hear the unspoken" what a fantastic line. So very true. This was such a beautiful piece :)

    This is beautiful, Harmony. It reminds me of sitting on the back porch and watching the sunset with the dear hubster. Quiet, romantic, just sitting there.

    There is so much to hear if we would only silence ourselves to listen. Powerful poem, Harmony.
