True Silence

creek-img_2590

my inner voice
like remnants of an echo
thrives in true silence

in the peaceful scenes
of the mountains silence reigns
melodious creek
and the wind in trees bring me
to a place of true silence

Inspired by:

old barn
in the middle of the field
so desolate
a playground for the wind
deep silence of no where

(c) Chèvrefeuille

“…There is a silence where hath been no sound,
There is a silence where no sound may be,
In the cold grave—under the deep deep sea,
Or in the wide desert where no life is found,
Which hath been mute, and still must sleep profound;
No voice is hush’d—no life treads silently,
But clouds and cloudy shadows wander free,
That never spoke, over the idle ground:
But in green ruins, in the desolate walls
Of antique palaces, where Man hath been,
Though the dun fox, or wild hyena, calls,
And owls, that flit continually between,
Shriek to the echo, and the low winds moan,
There the true Silence is, self-conscious and alone. …”

Silence

smell of wood fire
creeping into the silence –
quiet reflection

quiet reflection
flames licking around the wood
a healing silence

Photo: Taken at the beach on a end-of-summer day, hurricane was in the winds. As the waves swept back out to sea I got this shot. Very shiny!!

wind and rain
torturing young leaves
– bruised buds

mountain trail –
the silence broken
monk’s footsteps

river calms –
summer breeze hugs frame
as she strolls

snow atop
sparrow’s evergreen –
now, blue sky

Photo: Taken on the butterfly bush outside my window, a windy day.

misty rain
sprinkling young leaves..
tender buds

in mountain vistas
therapeutic silence..
a monk contemplates

sounds from the river
feel of balmy summer breeze..
she sits with eyes closed

before the first snow
sparrows feast on red berries..
gray replace blue sky
