Our silent places

In their intense meditation the hidden sound of things approaches them and they listen reverently while in the street outside the people hear nothing at all.*
Nassim Taleb

TO FOLLOW A WANDERING MIND means having to get lost. CAN YOU STAND BEING LOST?**
Lynda Barry

Where are your silent places?

I find myself increasingly drawn into
silence.

Whilst the world becomes noisier and busier,
Many still shape
or fall lost into
wandering and wondering spaces,
Open to about what
may want to be,
within but also
between them.
