in the silence of the morning

a cuckoo...then a cow from a long distance away,

playing their different tunes...

like when you sit at the veena, dearest,

probing the notes of a new composition,

me, on the floor, listening.

There's music in everything, the only thing is one should have an ear to listen to it.

all notes exist in the silence of Om. in this silence is all music.
who said this? who else than swami albhuthananda? myself!
i was wondering the other day how surprising we can make each moment of our life. approach each moment with total surprise! it is as simple as that!

The neighbourhood cuckoos have gone silent this summer. I am still hopeful. Nice poem.
