As I Wonder…

As I Wonder...

Alone
in this cold and gray September morning.
And in this moment I deeply surrender to the pale sunlight,
the rustling leaves and the blowing wind,
the wet grass that is still green and those quiet flowers.

But there are no birds.

And then,
there is…the eloquence of silence.

  1. “The eloquence of silences” is too often missed and seldom sought by too many of us.

  3. Beautifully written. It defines everything about nature and its silence of meditation with life. 🙂

    silence
    punctuated
    by
    the presence
    of
    a
    beating
    heart
