Beyond silence

Straining to hear
the voice of God over the hum
of life; the drone & drum
of the washing machine.

Beyond the doors,
a bird solicits sex;
behind the brain, electric
chatter & whine; the idea

of silence unthinkable 
since the first sound created
by the Spirit of God, brooding
on the restless deep.
