A Night of Silence

Updated on March 4, 2019

When I Make Every Attempt To Quiet My Mind

From a life filled with distractions

There is the t.v. and an easy push of a button

Off it goes

After a conversation with my wife

I ask for a little quiet time

She is more than happy to oblige

I look over at our cat Charlotte

A sleep and curled in a ball

Giving her a light soft pat on the head

I leave her content

I finish off a small bowl of Pistachios

So delicious and so hard to stop eating

A cold glass of water

Refreshing and drinking to the final sip

Folding the clothes out of the dryer

So I can dismiss my need to finish what I started earlier

Washing the dirty dishes in the sink

Finishing my chores for the night

A bathroom run

My body now at a more relaxed state

Changing into more comfortable clothes

That do not restrict or hinder

Shutting off the lights

Giving my eyes a much needed rest

Each new thought that enters in my mind

I simply acknowlege it's precense

Repeat the thought outloud

Then release it from my lips

Now listening to the humming of the laptop

I have to shut it off

My body loose and my arms dangling by my side

How to live

My brain is a blank slate

My soul

Open to peace and quiet

Welcoming love from all directions

        Gypsy Rose Lee It sounds so beautiful. We all search for that peace and quiet. Then we turn that time into great thoughts that we embellish what we see by words to experience the best experience possible. There is no better time for me than to be with family and friends. I also need alone time to regroup and reboot. Feeling the wonderful feelings and deep emotions that trigger happiness. Thank you for being the first to comment. Wishing you new spirit and energy to accomplish all your latest goals. Thank you so very much for all your support.

        When night falls and it gets quiet and I am still working the window is open and all I need to hear is one meow and I know I have company either Sid or my kitty niece Oreo. Hope you're having a great new week.
