Silence

No comments

So much can be said in silence

The way a body moves

The sparkle in someone’s eyes

Feeling inwards, unable to speak verbal language

Yet my world speaks to me, in silence

Distractions

This and that

The rain sounds pretty

Wait, what was that thought?

Beauty surrounds me

In the stillness of the world, of the mind, of the soul

My soul is speaking

Am I listening?

Look at that busy little ant

Wait, what was that thought?

My thoughts ebb and flow

Like the tides with the moon

No judgment, just noticing

I hear noises, what are they?

Wait, what was that thought?

No need to know, just feel

Accept, love,

All of it

The silence is yours at anytime you choose

Wait, what was that thought?
