peace…and quiet?


pack me light

stamped for camp

undress the stress

in quiet wilderness


where grass rustles

stream gurgles clear

beaver crew bustles

clouds thunder near


meadow lark sings

mosquitos start riot

forest tree rings

stones, alone, silent


Listen to the “sounds of silence” with Dwight tonight at dVerse Poets pub…

    A beautiful write Lynn, I love those places where ‘where grass rustles’ and the
    ‘stream gurgles clear’ :o)

    Nicely done. Sometimes the hum of nature around us can create the silence we need to quiet our minds to listen and to hear that silent voice speaking to us.
