Musical Silence

I sat on a chair and listened
Did nothing else but listen
I realised that there is music
in everything if you listen
In the clattering of the fan
In the whispers of the wind
In the fluttering of the sheets
In the gushing of flowing water
In  the honking of the horns
In the driving over potholes
In the arrival of the bus
In the suddenness of a brake
In the crackling of a paper
In the whistles of a cooker
In the twittering of the birds
In the music of ringtones
In the snapping of the purse
In the thudding of running shoes

***
I could write on and on
Eventually I have to stop
But stop I will not
listen to the music in silence
