Silence

image

Sometimes even the flutter
of moth wings is too loud.
I crave silence. I even write
in hushed tones under an oak
tree where nature seems
spiritual and serenity touches
me through the dew filled daisies.
I raise my pen to the sun.
I take in the charm of fresh air,
a storytelling of peace. It’s easier
to trust in the smell of honeysuckles
and the blueness above than humans.
People vanish with the seasons and create
noise and chaos inside my head. But the sky,
today, at least, is a reliable ally.
It whispers to me in
calm meditative tones
In the quiet I breathe again.

    Salut Tosha!

    That’s a very beautiful read! Feels like looking into a mirror —

    Very vividly! I enjoyed it thoroughly!
    I wish you a splendid day 😊

  2. I love to listen to silence. There are still places in NM where it is possible not to hear any un-natural sounds all day with the exception of a random plane. I crave that kind of quiet. And Deep Purple? Honey, that’s my generation.:0)
