Needing Silence


Needing Silence


Sometimes in a life

Filled to the head

With words

Silence is requested

To clear all

Stale and musty thoughts

Make room for

Fresh and new.

Or just because

I need some space

A quiet mind

To be



Quietest place I’ve ever been…up in a hot air balloon. Miles above the earth. No noise at all. Amid all the hustle and bustle and noise of daily life I sometimes long for that silence again. Especially on days when I’m not feeling too hot.

Where do you find silence?

  1. I would have to settle for driving out in the country and getting out of the car – hot air balloons and I would not work well. Fortunately, I live very near a lot of country and my home has only my cat to make noise in this small town life of mine.
