I have stumbled across a new passion: writing. It is proving to be insightful and rewarding.
I hear silence ringing in my ears.
In the silence I listen for more time.
Aren’t we allowed more time?
Time doesn’t seem to wait for us.
Listen to the clock.
Be ready, it will chime for you.
And when chime it does, life itself will pass into infinity.
Under the cover of silence is the mystery of quiet melancholy.
Up through the soul it grows.
Sometimes it is blinding in all it’s stillness.
As the mind reconciles, so too does the spirit.
Thoughts become conscious and consciousness becomes awareness.
Choose patiently, delicately.
Remember to reflect.
Tranquility will be mirrored by serenity.
