Chaos's Quiet Refuge - ZorbaBooks

Chaos’s Quiet Refuge

I need a moment of silence,

A moment away from all the noise,

More inside my head than outside,I hear sound of other people,

So much so that I am unable to hear my own voice.


Therefore, I need a moment to pause,

1, 2, 3, 4, 5, take a breath….hold it….. let it out,

And stay silent for a moment,

No other thoughts,

just listen to the following wind,

And passing cars, or chirping birds,


They are sounds as well,

but not noise that disturbs my inner equilibrium.

They have melody and harmony within,

Unlike the voices of other people,

Unlike Random sentences or random stories going in my head,


….It’s okay now,

take a breath,1, 2, 3, …..let it go,

We are calm now,

We can think more clearly now,

Now we can start moving again.
