Uninvited Silence


In a bright summer afternoon,
when a gusty wind blows my window,
I establish my connection with outer world.
Standing besides the opened window, 

I can hear a confusion of sounds,
the loud talks,
quarreling in neighborhood, 
an engine letting go off steam, 
the cries of playing children, 
free laughter of beautiful girls,
the rumble of a passing lorry, 
the buzzing of bees,
and the strident call of the crows. 

Amidst all this noise,
a silence starts creeping into my soul
unsought and uninvited .
