    I came here expecting to find a completely unique take on the prompt, and I was not disappointed!

    Funny thing about noises, eh? I’m having to accustom myself to Mr Misky’s noises around the house. He’s semi-retired, and I’ve had the house to myself for years and years during the day. It’s not unpleasant; it’s just an adjustment I hadn’t expected.

    I had my career within that picture but do not know how it releates to tinitus. I can still hear the power of the jet engine which was my life. I was the cabin staff purser.

      Tinnitus fills your head with noise, even when there is exterior silence. The paradox here is that continuous exposure to loud noises – eg aircraft engines – leads to hearing loss as well.


  9. The sound of silence. Wonderful haiku and all those with tinnitus know that sound well.
