Listen To The Quiet

Listen To The Quiet short poem

Photo by James Jordan

Here I am, it is 2 am,
Sitting at my counter.
What did I do today?
What will I do tomorrow?

The cats and dogs,
Dreaming animal dreams.
I wonder what
They dream about.

My mind is free to wander,
Nothing to hold it down.
What do I really want to do?
I will listen to the quiet.
