Silence...

There is constant
Noise.
Everywhere.

The buzz of
Flourecent lights.
The creak of
Loose floorboards.
The drone of
Televisions.

Never silence.

The whistle of
Wind.
The drum of
Rain.
The clap of
Thunder.

Never silence.

The scream of
Hungry babies.
The chatter of
Squirrels.
The cry of
Hunters.

Never silence.

The babble of
Brooks.
The chirp of
Birds.
The murmur of
Breezes.

Never silence.

What if?
What if sounds were none?

Some know the answer.

Silence would
No longer be
A virtue.
