The river of Sound

is endless.


Never ceasing


At night

In the dark

It feels like it is running

Through my bed

Through my head

Through my clothes

In my toes

The sound

The noise.

Breathing in to welcome the day

Breathing out

The river

The stream

The consciousness

The very life of this city

Is outside my window

Flowing to the sea.

It bursts along

Droplets flowing

Never knowing

The sound they’re making

In a quaking

Me into another night

Of no sleep.

The presence of the sound is strong

In the valley

With the birds

With the trees

Nature delights

Nature’s delight
