Being Quiet

30 Dec

As the sound of traffic
joy and sorrow
past and future
are but waves of the ocean

To stay in the moment
not the drama that unfolds
when waves ripple
over the vast space beneath

I die on this breath
bringing to life
the richness of silence
the depths of the ocean

To a good friend with a lot on his plate ❤

    magical grace in your words,
    living is like death, we go flat sometimes.

    powerful and beautiful imagery.
