The Silence Calls to Me


As my walk goes deeper into the forest, the silence calls to me.

Cooler air envelops the trees

covered by the shade, I turn suddenly when a sparrow leaves her nest.

Noticing the sunlight is diffused now

looking with my heart filled,

I bow my head

as a lone crow ruffles his feathers

disturbed by my sense

of quiet.

We do make peace and then…..

I let the words flow,

but is it really a prayer?

        Thank oyu and have a wonderful Sunday, Nico!

  1. I often feel an immediate affinity to both your photo images in the forest and your thoughts that go with them. Thanks again for sharing them both.

    1. Thank you Joan! Yes I like that part of writing. We can create the unexpected, something no one has thought about before. Peace to you and wonderful blessings.
