3 quiet poems about sound

there are songs in the sunset
never sung
by anyone
but whispered
across time
by poets and mystics
who stand still long enough to arrive

my song
is not
really
a song so much
as a sound
scribbled
in a tattered notebook
that sings when i’m around

quiet
is not
the absence of sound
but the space between
the shipwreck and the shore
when you realize
you are not going to drown
