In the woods of the lab
In the woods the silence is a guest
Of squirrels and blackbirds.
Silence announces danger
And my hair stand up
Ready to react.
Tiny noises from near and far are safety
Reminding you life in all its scales
And an environment you can trust.
This natural noise oscillation
Is vital also in the lab
Where activities soak in small words
And results come from focused questions.
