Poetry Month: What Can You Hear in Silence? 6 of 30



Only in the quiet
can you hear
the bubbling of the fish tank;
the clicking of the dog's feet
across the hardwood floor.

Only in the quiet
can you hear
the rumble of the truck;
the hum of electricity
racing from darkness to light.

Only in the quiet
can you hear
the reflections of the day;
the memories
of times cherished.

Only in the quiet
can you hear
your true voice;
the stories and words
that fill your soul.
