Just Listen

written by: Don Knowles



There are sentences in each inadvertent sound
Each noise speaks
just listen
A tap of heels down an empty hallway
The breath of light breeze passes your way
Silently in discussion with your inner hearing
gearing of a mechanism beyond your waking perception
Just like there are no words without a meaning
So is true of sound
Why program a mind to perceive a splash
A cry
If these waves weren’t meant for reasonings
For listening
Before speaking another vibrating common message
To oft used in banality
Imploring you dear reader
Stop and listen to the snow’s crackle
Hear the industry’s buzz about you
A simple sigh and its fathomless meanings
If you just stop
You’ll Really hear them
