To be silent for a while
I choose to remain silent for a while.
Allow my ears to relive the wild.
Be a part of the cosmos around,
And listen to the incoming strange sounds.
To hear and then listen,
What my continuum outside,
Has to murmur in unison.

Poet's Notes about The Poem
The other connection which hit me, Hindu philosophy talks about withdrawing the mind from the senses, detaching the mind from the senses, to meditate to a higher level. I as a man of science have never really understood this. But I find one rational connect, if you for example for a day, decide not to speak, you are allowing your other senses to sharpen and compensate for the one you have switched off. Perhaps this could have been a method of finding the 6th sense, if it at all exists.
