Sound.
Even in “silence”
we have sound.

a click
a hiss
a hum
an echo

(it’s early)
(it’s quiet)
(it’s “silent” here)
(but for the click, hiss, hum, and echo)

In a first draft,
I tend to miss writing sound into story.
(I have to go back and ponder,
then add)

Especially in those “quiet moments,”
being aware of sound
can be profound
(and soothing).

Being aware.
Present.
In the moment.
Conscious.

Open.
Listening.

All around us.
So much to hear.
So much to be aware of.
(we’re not just talking about sound,
are we?)

(Magical Things Happen
When We Listen)

Listening.
Something we can all practice
this Christmas season.
