Soundless Things


I need to listen to soundless things –

Small shelters of everyday wonder and comfort

Playing hide and seek

Around the corners of my days 

Waiting to be found

Before they disappear “home free”.

Today I found –

The smell of sun in stacks of folded sheets,

How slow a sand castle tower can fall,

The pale green of still curled leaves,

The way rain fills a nook of young wood.

Tonite I wrote them on a list

Then folded it,

And tucked it back in my pocket just over my heart.

I need to listen to soundless things from there.

    • Hi Marlene- glad u liked it. Strange to think we have to set an intention and then make space for joy. I remember a time when I didn’t even realize it was missing from my life…I was so rushed. When I look back at that woman, I don’t recognize her (and that’s a good thing). Sounds like we’ve been on the same path.
