Don’t you like the sound of the rising sun?

 

The sound? You asked politely as we sat on the roof.

 

Yes, the sound.

The sound of the singing birds, as the light, defeats darkness.

The sound of the alarm clocks, bringing life to a hushed house.

of the coffee machine as it pours the liquid that kindles your soul.

of the soft pleas for a couple more minutes.

The sound of routine,

 as existence is awakened from its slumber.

 

I looked at him.

 

He looked at the sun.

 

I looked at the office workers walking silently to their cars, coffee-mug in hand.

 

Behind every rising sun,

new and old sounds merge.

Songs rise between people.

Life goes on,

twisting and turning everyone’s strings of faith together.

 

Can you hear it?

The sound of these strings vibrating as the tension rises.

Knots forming between people.

Like a musician playing a melody.

 

I’ve heard no softer sound,

than that of the rising sun.
