Silence

Like a plain sheet

It is nestled here

In its perfection

I wake up to it

In the middle of the night

It commands a surge of

gratitude

Supplies time to think

It’s intent is just to be

present.

SILENCE!

An opportunity to be

Just be

Enveloped in this hushed space.

During the March slice of life challenge, I collected many words from slicers, words I have never used in my writing. I vowed to use them frequently and today I have been able to dot some of them around, here in my poem about silence.
