Noise

It’s noisy out there…
city fare constant pounding
resounding
to the tune of progress

engines winding up
and winding down
moving citizens round
where do they stop?
they don’t stop…
they rebound

even listless feet
beat the street while
other feet
passing
are in sync
creating rhythm

no chance
for tedium
from the strum
of a corner
guitar whose star
waits
to be discovered

there will be others
to take his place
when the pace
is too fast
and at last
a pause
in the action
occurs

what would it be
worth
if all the
noise on
earth
simply stopped?

would we be
deafened
by the
silence?

    We don’t always want what we really desire, huh? You write beautifully 🙂
