the green

heart of the world

beats to the sound of pipes

and the endless laughter of running


in the green heart of the world the

silence of music reigns

no human ear

I used to do lots of things I didn't much enjoy. Now I am officially a writer. It's what I always wanted to be.

  1. what there is (pipes, running water)
    what there isnโ€™t (the silence of music)
    the green world lives but goes ignored

    I hope you don’t mind if I share what I wrote in my journal after reading your poem. I appreciate what you composed. It’s wistful.
