The sound in silence

Floating in the air , like a lifeless feather
So light and so free
The gentle wind , of the sea and the earth
Lifting my spirit to touch the heavens

Into the darkness , I keep looking
Pitch black , filled with nothing
Into the emptiness , I stare
Searching for meaning, in the voidflat550x550075f

And then I hear the sound
Soothing and calming ,
My every thought vanishing
As the time froze in space

The sound of the waves,
Amidst the silence in the air
Giving warmth to my heart
Amidst the cold pain of life

I found music that day,
Not of notes and keys ,
But of silence in the sea …
