Silence Calls To Me

Updated on April 24, 2017


It beckons deafening sound of silence

My mind whispers over and over in my head

It's infernal noise threatening

Choking off all conscious thought

Silence cries the shadow of the sun as it slips beyond dark clouds


whispers carried by the movement of the wind

As it rustles the leaves on the trees

The wispy rustling trees move with purpose as I ventured through

The wet mossy leaves beneath the limbs

Of the majestic Oak come away, come away


As I tread softly upon the crispness of the leaves that underfoot

That underfoot grips black sole shoes

And still, I venture into woods black with the coming storm

The call of the baby birds and crickets in unison

Deafening within the silence of the Night


The colorless drab walls of the wooden cabin

Moans with the wind the strike of a match ignites a flame

And all around me silence

Rain beats down on top of metal roof in beautiful symphony

Shutters vibrate with the howling wind rustling the loosened rafters

The old grandfather clock ticks the seconds

As creaky staircase beneath loafers wet with dew

Squeaks silence

Faucett moan eerily as water courses through pipes rusted with age

Sputtering on and off until lines fill to capacity.

Written in 2011, I love old barns it's how I imagined an old barn I took pictures of on one of Keiths and my drive into the Country.

      I loved the the array of images you created in my mind. Good job! PS. Silence is another from of meditation and conservation of energy if you are feeling a little low in body power-silence is good for us!
