Hello Silence My Old Friend

HELLO silence_edited-1

Quiet sits off centre


Waiting to rise above to-do lists with no end

Waiting to be heard


In a busy world we must notice


To sink below persistent clamour

To reach the quiet place

Where even silence has a sound

Blood drumming

Breath flowing

Spirit humming


In the quiet I am free

Free to filter wayward thoughts

Free to capture timid dreams

And hopes unheard

Until now

In solitude invited


Layers of silence wrap tight

Solitude sought

Or bought

Even caught


Sinking deep the silent haze

Quiet, I will find you

You and all your friends
