the rhythms of traffic,
the beat of sprinklers
and melodies of birds
is the underlying silence
that holds it all together.

Painting: Rene Magritte – The Poet Recompensed
I really like this one–the quiet certainty of the in-between.
I love that Magritte, too. 🙂
The last two lines were quietly powerful
Thank you! Much appreciated 😁
Thoughts like this enter my head on long morning walks and long sleepless nights. It is pleasant and revelatory 🙂
Truth expressed beautifully. Thank you for sharing this.
The beauty of simplicity shines brightly in this poem. Very well done Daniel!
Congratulations on being published and welcome to the Vita Brevis family Daniel!
I think they call that dark matter. 😉 Please forgive the humor if not appropriate. I liked it but that’s the first thing which popped in my head after reading it. Very nice poem!
