From the sleepover below
Even cat has found
His favorite napping spot
Only fans--the white noise of Seattle--
Blowing in cool air at end of day
And soft tapping keys
Intrude upon thoughts tonight.
Noise is overrated
Funny how so many people
Try to break the blessed silence
With complaints about the weather
Phone calls, questions, repeated words
They do not realize the depth to be found
In the listening
In the waiting
In the nothing.
