Poem – Quiet Winter by Prof. Ambika Devi

© 2016, Ambika Devi. Used with permission.

I have a cosmos of quiet
so silent
I can hear beyond the light sound of snow falling
through the porch enclosure
onto the surface of the pond

I can hear past the walls
and the thick woods behind the house
past the main road
almost a mile away
I listen to the clouds
I listen to my breath


the rhythm of existence
