The Universe

All is quiet in the world.

Pieu the violins to play a wispy open string
And the cellos paint a melody of pianissimo on a canvas of silent.
The earth is loud.
But in the universe, it makes no sound
As the reverberations of warring countries
Diminuendo into nothing,
Diminish into a ghastly whisper,
Left behind from the civility of the universe.

The universe is the only sanity,
But even it is insane with beauty,
Beauty from the body,
Beauty for the soul.

We are one,
Connected by energy and everything is the same.
We are strong in quiet,
Quiet and strong.


Pieu the violins,
To play a wispy open string,
And the cellos paint a melody of pianissimo on a canvas of silent.
The earth is loud,
But in the universe it makes no sound.
Diminuendo into nothing,
The heinous world
Diminishes into nothing,
And so do I.
