filled with

the silence

filled with sound

I hear the blowfly

a tweet
from some small bird
is hardly sound
at all

a lonely Romeo
occasionally croaking
has set his home up
beneath a builder’s wrap

a black plastic

every now and –


– then

he sounds a heartfelt

even silent
there is the wind
that ruffles leaves
in trees
everywhere it passes

I hear it
I do

it susurrates the silence
a near inaudible

I am in full silence

filled with sound

Poem #598 from a series of poems drawn from the imagination and collected as: a Bachelard reverie.
