I don’t know silence –
though I know quiet
and in quiet
the sound of the universe
finds my ears –
a humming sound high pitched
I think it is the voice
of God sending out an SOS –
I am here. I am here. ________________________________________________________________________
There are people who know what they want to do –
planning out their lives from childhood.
I spent years waiting for something to
happen- for my big break –
to be lead to where I belonged.
But, no call came and as I waited
life happened and was suddenly over.
