#OctPoWriMo 9

Mindfulness

Blackout
The modern world is
Silenced
Suddenly and completely

Computers
Stand like corpses
Empty
Black boxes noiseless

Nature
Filters in through thin walls
Birdsong
And applauding leaves

Mindfully
I close my eyes to listen
Earth Mother
Speaks in tones
We are often too busy to
Comprehend

Inspired by Day 7 Prompt at OctPoWriMo – Silence

When do we truly know silence in this modern age except when the power goes out? It is the most amazing absence of sound I’ve ever heard.
