The Sound of Silence


Written in 1994 when my kids were still young.

The Sound of Silence

The children are asleep…

Tigger’s curled up on the rug, softly purring…

Magey’s tail goes thump, thump, thump, as she dreams…

The far off vibration of a train…

The wind chimes tinkle in the soft blowing wind…

The gentle snores of my lover…

The low rustle of the leaves…

The pitter patter of a gentle rain…

The slight rumble of thunder in the distance…

The crackle of logs in the fireplace as the flames burn low…

The soft murmur of a neighbor’s tv…

This is what silence sounds like to me…
