With Quiet Thoughts

Updated on February 12, 2018

I'm a writer, a poet, a dreamer. Born and raised in New York City. I live in the suburbs of Riga, Latvia. I have a wonderful cat named Sid.

Quiet thoughts ease my mind,

when the day has been long,

the road has become rough

and my thoughts are chained and bound.

It’s hard to be inspired,

when your world has turned upside down,

then it’s great to commune with nature -

where everything is quiet and still.

I can think quiet thoughts

and ease my mind,

from the weary day,

that has just ended.

I take a walk outside,

in my garden ,

there I can get the inspiration I need,

a new day to greet.

The sky above shines a light down on me

and the moon is beaming,

when the night comes riding in again.

My troubled mind,

can find the satisfaction it needs,

quiet thoughts,

to ease my mind,

renewed inspiration -

to pass the time.

Melodies that shine,

lyrics that rhyme,

song that make it –

all so right once more.

Take away the sorrow,

dry the tears,

just leave the memories behind.

I find I can put it all together,

once more,

just as long as I let,

my troubles go away

and remain with quiet thoughts,

quiet times,

muse inspired

and in the night,

to find -

love desired.

      I’d rather have quiet with my cats than noise all around me. We live in a world that is too loud and intrusive. Your poem communicates the sense of refuge that the quiet offers.

      Thank you Manatita.

      Thank you Robin. Elton has many songs that inspire.

      You welcome Nikki.

      No, Bill, we wouldn't. One must always have some quiet time.

      That is so true Michael.

      Those quiet moments consolidates solemn thoughts and the spirit whispers the finest words of life and tranquility...

      If I didn't have my quiet time I would be a crazy person, and we don't want that. :)

      You describe something that we all need from time to time, in a succinct but wonderful way. You reminded me of what is perhaps called a tranquility bath, done in luxurious hotel resorts. Soothing Hub
