Silence sounds

In between the space of worlds
The thoughts of life
And waking dreams
The silent sounds echo
From star to star
Filling the emptiness
With a universal symphony
And the music of dust
Like hourglass sand
Wearing the crystal
Through time and minutes
One by one thinning
The receptacle of a whispered jar
Holding fast each tiny grain
Upside down
Begins again.
Soothing waves of seconds
A course set at birth
Time and time again
Returns to heed
The orchestra of a breath
As gravity pulls
Forward the life

I often ponder the sounds one would hear if you could float along in space aware of the sounds as the universe and stars live their lives as we do. Would we find silence?

  2. I think this is beautiful. Especially the endnote. My father always used to tell me exactly that… what if.. we could hear the defeaning sounds in outer space the universe makes as it progresses? Here I see it again… 🙂
