Listen

Open your ears and listen

Really listen

Can you hear it?

The ocean

An airplane

Wind in the trees

A fly

A bee

Open year ears and listen

I can hear it

Heart beats

Heards

Flocks

Colonies

Cities

Listen

Open your ears and listen

Really listen

The pitter-patter of raindrops?

Lightning crackling

Followed by deafening rolling roars of thunder?

Your own breathing disturbing the silence?

Open up your ears and listen

Every sound strikes a chord

Every movement—percussive

Every beast

Every mind

Every life

Every atom

Each living away life

To their own rhythm

Listen Open up your ears

Can you hear the music?

Music in every existence

I live for those sound

s Open up your ears

Really listen

Just listen.
