The bustling clanging of daylight action
creates cluttering static in the brain.
Silence in the night offers solution,
yet night itself may provide a refrain
of off-hand noise from roaring vehicles,
or children plagued by traumatic nightmare,
or one’s own insomniac, riddle dreams,
which may inspire momentary scare.
Still silence in the night is a pleasure
to be savored like a cheerful bouquet
of flowers you have picked from your garden.
Silence itself is a form of leisure
like gazing fondly at the Milky Way
or contemplating your childhood again.
