No silence – a universe of sounds

Outside last night beneath a frangipani
a night’s stars swept, brushed our worlds
in passing rivers on their ways in darkness,
but silence is always awake for them
never sleeping, just faded within each hours
bent to blue tempered air caught by day.

Kind of something akin to strangers
in the back room, listening to every
word uttered between tongues, transmitted
voices unaware how every whisper is heard
echoing through the vast empty noise
tapping threads woven, intertwined, silent.

End of day

  1. “voices unaware how every whisper is heard” – my favourite part. This poem reminded me and felt like a snipet of new, modern mythology.

    • In a way at the time, thoughts filtered upon how humanity listens to stars across vast distances in space, some long since gone, their light extinguished, but their myth and legend remain in voice, speaking to us as we listen close to their story. But how might we sound in the vast noise of the universe, our voices, our stories still traveling time and space on a journey, what if someone listens close enough, what will they hear. Yes a modern mythology mixed with a little science. Thanks, Oloriel.
