Enjoying silence

Listening but not hearing
being in quietness
in silence without any words
only thoughts in my mind
softly written on paper
in the early morning hours
without any traffic and noise
sounds have just disappeared
while feeling quite pleasant
in the sound of silence.


As a 4 year old, I sat through hour long Quaker meetings that were silent. That was a chore. But, now, I love the silence of a quiet evening sitting out on the back deck with the hopes of quieting my agitated mind.
