Poem: New Life Detected


A news bulletin populates the screen

A drink sits on the lonely table in the room

Another tragedy plays

A building collapsed

A mine shuts its mouth on the intruding miners

A train decides to leave the tracks

And wonder the countryside

In search of a new life.

Five dead

A hundred dead

Causality unknown

He wonders, when will be his time?

He sips his drink silently

The TV is silent

But the rolling bar displays the news

Like memories rolling in his head

He sips his drink silently

And ponders his next move.

Another rescue effort takes place

Some dead

Some alive

Some unconscious

And some dies on the way.

In a grief stricken world

A noise makes hope

Like magic

All the hands

All the eyes

All the heart beats dig

Into the space that is framing the sound signal

A noise becomes life

Another child is born

From a womb.

A new life is detected

The search intensifies

The time becomes precious

The space becomes whole existence

What is about the noise

That drives us so crazy?

Perhaps the fear of the noise of silence?

He finishes his drink

And leaves the empty glass on

The empty table.

He can’t stand this silent noise any longer

He opens the window taking in

The wind and

The screams of life

The car horns

The people talk

He joins them stepping out of the window

Sirens fill the air.

A new life is detected.
