Silence’s Song by Cassandra Peterson

Even in quiet,
There is sound.
Hearts beating,
Clocks striking,
The electric humming.
All separate.
All one.

The songs of birds,
As we pass them by,
Hardly noticing,
Never minding.
Yet they are there,
Making sounds our ears tune out.

There is a song in it.
A longing song,
A love song,
A tragedy,
Words unspoken,
Soft, meek voices unheard.

A symphony,
A cacophony,
Of silent noise,
Beautiful and Harmonic,
Ugly and discordant,
A song that we never hear–
Though it’s more like we don’t listen.
Tuning out the world.
Missing the song in Silence.
