Circumference of Silence

at 2:47am
silence
gifts
reprieve

though
stillness
has its own
small
sounds
that surround
the space
create

the quiet

the orchestrated layers
of steady
cricket wings
in grass

a distant rooster
yearning
in the trees

the muffled
foam
of surf
a mile
away

the Bohemian
breathing
sleep
near
my ear

here
the slightest
soundless
breeze
lifts
the curtain

one lone car
passes
on the road

these
subtle sounds
all shaping
quiet
