Breathe in the silence-w

I hear sounds of the wind hissing and rustling. I listen on the beach to the waves cascading, Slapping, tossing swashing the sand pebbles, Something close to eternity within me touches. I see some gliding fishing boats over there, The seagulls soaring, gliding in the air here, And Surfers trying to get rides on the waves Something close to eternity within me touches. I watch people running, strolling and sunning, Setting sun promise to rise tomorrow morning Like the human ambitions and unknown desires Something close to eternity within me touches. I notice the crabs scurry, somewhere hiding, Leaving smooth bed of sand, water receding, All sounds now receding to its minimum hiss. Something close to eternity within me touches. This silence rubs, softens me, gives a purpose I find even my pains are held in this silence Surrender my self-importance, my smallness Something close to eternity within me touches. =============================== Sixth Place Win in: Contest: Breathe in the silence sponsored by Paula Swanson

When we acknowledge our own insignificance in the universe, the introspection of silence sets in, Dr. Ram. Excellent poem! Congratulations, Carolyn
