    Resonance
    Slow vibrations of sound
    When still is interrupted

    By move-ment

    A tap of a glass allowing
    The voice of smooth
    To ring quietly
    Shhhh, if you stay real
    Still you can hear the resonance
    Of a bee’s wings keeping him in
    Flight.

    Still can only occur when
    You close your eyes to light
    For in darkness there is nothing
    And silence appears when
    Nothing’s there to disrupt.

    My mind’s clear when I see black
    An empty abyss of opposite light
    Holding fast to the still as I seek to
    Hear the resonance of your heart beat
    Thump….
    thump….
    Thump…..
    Th-ump…
    t-h-u-mp…
