In the Clouds

I stepped out in to the damp morning

Surrounded by mist and clouds.

Even the birds were hushed

to whispers from inside the trees.

I took a moment to absorb

That soft silence.

The one that speaks louder

Than any voice.

Every so often someone says something that really grabs me. In this case I was really taken by your photo and then came to the words

That soft silence.
The one that speaks louder
Than any voice.

And I was truly grabbed. It just describes how I sometimes feel when I sit or stand on the deck in the dead of night when the cicadas are not singing fit to bust.

Really beautiful words. I love thinking about the power and suggestiveness of that "soft voice" of silence. It has so often brought me peace during my attempts at creativity and harmony.

Terrific emotion can be pulled from that picture too. Thanks!
