Be Still

Sounds of man
Drown the sounds of nature
Industrial noise
Clanking machinery
A buzzing drone
But listen
Be still
To the birds’ shrill
Yet beautiful song
Learn from it
And understand
Such beauty also
Lies within
Drowned by all
Society’s teachings
Of shoulds and shouldn’ts
But listen
Be still
To the heart’s thrill
And let your beauty shine

  1. Within your mind,
    do think upon,
    the sound of bees,
    within their hives.
    The sound of form,
    the sound of shape,
    the hexagons,
    and uniform.
    It is all built,
    with glue and life,
    and made to house,
    them that exist.
    Within your mind,
    you might not think,
    of what you hear,
    as unwise noise.
    But think within,
    of sounds of man,
    that build the homes,
    where they exist.
    It is all built,
    with glue and life,
    and made to house,
    them that exist.
    It’s like the bees,
    but in the mind,
    it seems like noise,
    and they do not.
    Both man and bees,
    are in nature,
    and both make noise,
    that fill the earth.
    Do not discount,
    the sound of one,
    and think it bad,
    that houses life.
