The note

It travelled to me
Or perhaps
It travelled from me
A single note
At first more vibration
A slight quiver
A soft sound
Lost amidst the noise
The sounds of other notes
More strident
Pushy, insistent tones
Insecurity hidden in volume
Yet resolute
The trembling vibration
Grew, steadied
Perforating other sounds
Then stopped in silence
In drawn breath
Waiting, suspended
In still space
Then pulsating
It travelled to me
Though it also travelled
From me
The solitary note
The I am
Eternal harmony
Echoing in my heart
A single note
From The Note
The sound and the silence
Are One
