As the sun and earth begin
another moment of
Handing off the dim of darkness
To simmering luminosity–
I listen


In city streets hum human noise
The car The train
But underneath
The bird still sings her song


The footfalls upon the pavement
Echo quietly
There is always silence to be found
The gray recesses of our shuttered mind
The rooms we visit there


Creating quiet
Hushed harmony
We pray
for ourselves for the earth for others


Carve it out
Shut off sound
Sit stand listen
And catch the voice of
Peace within
