Hum

Omnipresent humming fills the space
Keeping it from harsh silence
Accentuated by occasional passing vehicles
Their whooshes and ripples slipping
Through solid windows
A gentle reminder that
You are not alone
Pressing shoulders back
Away from the chin
Opening lungs and heart
You relax tense muscles
And feel at home in the space
Instead of trapped in your body
Once rested, you get to decide
How much control you wish to have
And where your body and mind will
Wander. For now, give into the
Hum, let it wash over you
It vibrates the room so you can be still

(This is my October 26th contribution to Poem A Day October.)
