Sounds of Silence

Sounds of Silence

It was a sunny balmy day

with cloudless sky and breeze at bay,

birds were silently taking naps

dog’s not barking, asleep perhaps.

 

Squirrel’s stretched out upon a limb

soaking the sunshine’s warmth within,

lizards resting upon a rock

to lazy to attempt to change their frock.

 

No planes in skies high over head

no insect noises in flower bed’s,

neighbors mower’s in their garage

the sounds of silence in barrage

 

Bumble bee’s resting in their hive

no cars on streets now passing by,

just the coo of a lone dove

so soft and somber from above.

 

And the pilgrimage of flight

of a Monarch butterfly to delight,

no urgent need to do a thing

just take in silence as it sings.

 

Left alone now with my thoughts

to savor this stillness I had sought,

a gift too precious to dismiss…

This awe-inspiring day of Bliss.

Thanks T. Yea, laid back was a good word for that day. I snapped that pic of one of my squirrels out back too, feeling just like me and all nature that day, laid back and watching me doing nothin as I was watchin her doing nothin. Matching lazy for lazy on an unusually quiet Sunday afternoon. If it wasn't for the poets muse, I wouldn't have done a thing. W.

Poetry is not the expression of personality but an escape from personality.
