My mind spins ceaselessly 24/7. It's hard to focus. It's hard to think. Quite is what I need. Peace.
Silence will bring me peace.
I'm listening. What can I hear? Stop for a second. Think about nothing and just listen to the subtle noises of your surroundings.

I'm listening to the quite hum of my laptop. The subtle breathing of my 2 1/2 month old puppy.
The annoying rattle of my ceiling fan and the heavy rustling of damp leaves outside my window. They are so loud... the sounds remind me of the human voice; rising--and then falling, just as the intonation of someone in conversation.
My puppy, Bear, is so peaceful; so calm. I want to rest as he does--if only for a few moments. His tiny chest moves up and down with each breath. It reminds me of my own. Fully conscious of my breathing--now of my heartbeat... life is so fragile. 1...2...3...4... breath. So fragile, yet... so complex.

So much noise. I've never been so comfortable. Such tranquility is rare. The noises that heightened my senses, are now putting me in a state of total relaxation. My mind yields to nature's delicate hypnosis; I welcome it.

Soon these nightly sounds will be listening to me..... ZzZzZzZ
