Through noise do we decipher silence

Reading silence

Through noise do we read silence & through gaps do we decipher noise
As from the pulsating beat of a song
The distant train whizzing through time
Lightning slicing through thunderous
Clouds amidst rumbling nature
The woodpecker’s frenzy
One wave to another
Echoes of footsteps
Stillness crackles as dry wood in a camp fire spitting sparks in irregular
Heartbeats bridging the gaps & the noise in a harmonious breathing exercise.

    Love how quiet the photo is. A nice contrast to the sounds of the poem.

    • Funnily enough this poem was a reflection of the two but mostly of stillness & peace… now that you mention it I see your point, it is indeed noisy nevertheless there are most endearing sounds that invites us to quietude & draws us inevitably towards serenity at least in my humble opinion 🙂

  4. Beautiful writing and lovely photograph.

  5. I can totally relate.
    The spaces between things, the silences between sounds, the listening to both…..
