Have you ever heard the sound of silence?
No distracting beeps, engines, rushed footsteps, children’s tantrums, no interuptions just silently bliss silence.
Did everyone just fall asleep, did we all switch off and pressed reset. What’s this noise without voice or rumble.
Is silence the sound of peace that quietly surrounds or just a break in the daily madness we drown.
Have you ever been so deep into the woods the wind actually stops, the only noise is the birds but you can’t help listen to their glorious songs.
Every now and then I catch myself listening to the noiseless shock, silence waiting for the pin to drop.
The 4am visits, just me and my heart beat, slight rustle of the bedsheets.
It’s something you can’t really search yet it finds you the moment your not listening like it was patiently waiting to greet you.
That distant feeling when it all becomes so quiet, welcoming chances to deflect the hustle and bustle of everyday lifestyles.
Does silence truly exist or do we get lost in the daydreams, just forgetting as it fades into hushed seconds before life starts again.
Whatever it is, it’s welcome, this bedlam is deafening but so is the opposite.
Is silence just noise we simply haven’t heard yet.
