Noise and Music


The perplexity
Of untamed chaos
Asphyxiated her;
She could find
More and more noise
Wherever she looked for
Melody and Euphony.

A wood-note caressed her ears
From the faraway woods
She walked in that direction,
Letting the music of the forest
Nuzzle her chaotic mind
The tweeting birds, the rippling lake
The wild wind rustling the eager leaves.

The noise and the music merged
Just like day coalesces with night
In the bosom of evening;
In that moment,
She discovered peace.

  5. How wonderful to have such a sweet place in nature to turn to, to find peace. And then to find the words to recreate it for others. :-)

  6. How happy I was even just reading to have her leave the asphyxiation and move on to caresses and "Letting the music of the forest
    Nuzzle her chaotic mind."
