A Moment of Silence

In the modern world
The city never sleeps

Time is fleeting
Rush hour creeps

All around the bustle speaks
Its noise a hum in natures Keep

The older streets are full of yearning
For the world where life was once discerning

A glitch in time induces silence
For just one moment of perfect pause

The air is still
The light is ethereal

A haze of heat
Your mind is reeling

No sound penetrates
No vibrations

Your mind is clear
Suddenly lost in aural clearing

Natures cruelty on mankind
The noise returns the senses dulled

This man made cell
Of aural hell

The rumble stays
A hum invades

The city awake
Never still, never in slumber
