Today I am joining the Slice of Life community with this poem.
It takes a certain amount of quiet
It takes moments of silence
Where there isn't the sound of
Where electricity's hum cannot be heard
Where the sound of voices
And laughter take us far from our thoughts
Where is your quiet?
In a library's far corners?
In the peaceful flow
of a stream?
In the night stars
If you hope
It takes a certain amount of quiet.
