Silence


Underneath
percolating rain drops in sand

beneath
 dew drops rolling down the leaf blades

among
playful waves of roaring oceans

there’s
 deep silence

only heard
by a
heart
calm within

  7. This is beautifully structured: all the activity inherent in nature, and then ... silence and calm.
