I Wonder

I Wonder.  I sit in this immensity of sound;
a bellow in the blast sound;
a sound that rips sensitivity’s jacket thread bare
and lays waste to any cogent thought.
I am filled with hope as I sail through the night
In this juggernaut of noise known as the church lobby.
I get up, walk back to my office and close the door.

    I wonder how on earth I missed this. It is a noisy world, and I so appreciate my solitude, and quiet. I love the feeling and imagery this evokes. Happy Easter Orma, to you and yours. A heartfelt thank you for your beautiful comment on my blog. How wonderful to hear from you on this day. Thank you for thinking of me. Love & hugs, Shar xoxo
