Poetry: The Music of Noise

Poetry: The Music of Noise

by Liam

“The quieter you become the more you are able to hear.” Rumi

Before making quietude my practice

Before the sweetness of silence caressed my ears

Before stillness graced the kitchen table

Noise noise noise

Swept around my hearing all the day

While the music remained unheard

Pour that quality invisible, sweet and rich

Into your listening, your life, your love

Hear the whisperer

Hear the heart sweetener

Hear the music deepener

By making quietude, my practice

By the sweetness, of silence which caress my ears

By stillness, graced upon the kitchen table.
