The mind wanders

Fear is not submersion

In the crowd, but isolation

From the crowd

Mind yearns for silence

And also is afraid of silence

One wants to be alone, yet not lonely

Lesser the sound, more deafening become the thoughts

In the Himalayas, winds moan

In the valley of silence thoughts chatter

Often, a ‘non-presence’ makes a louder presence

Often, quieter one becomes, more one can hear

In a still mind truth gets a better chance of hearing

But, not easy is to keep the mind quiet
