Open your ears.

Close your mouth.

Hear the sounds

all around you.

You don't have to

say a word.

Gather your thoughts,

be observant about

what sounds are there

and what sounds are

not there.

That gives you a lot

of clues as to the world.

Yes, you could say

a lot but maybe now

is not the time.

Maybe quiet is the

best sound there is.

Sometimes saying nothing

is saying everything.
