And then silence, so quickly it comes,
I embrace it though, for it is sweet,
Comfortable and relaxing, a pleasure...
After a day filled with chaos and deceit.
I sit for a spell, enjoying the stillness,
And it calms me, offers me some clarity.
A thoughtful, peaceful moment to treasure,
To have total silence, it is such a rarity.
But the world is never truly without sound.
There is always something to be heard.
The feint echo of life rings through the air,
The wind, the river, a cricket, some birds.
So, as I sit and listen with my glass of wine,
Just enjoying the moment for what it is,
I realize how much I have let pass me by,
Important things, such as moments like this.
