Letting Silence Help Me Write

Sitting here in life’s sweet silence
Such a great, great place to be
My two dogs sit beside my legs
As we feel the mystery
As all the trees dance with the breeze
And the dove’s sweet gentle coo’s
They fill me up with life’s sweet joy
Neath the sky all perfect blue

I guess you’d call me a loner
It’s always been my way
I often sit here all alone
And watch nature at play
The summer heat is very fierce
But all is beautiful
This country. It is still the best
To me it’s wonderful

As I sit here creating words
Trying to write a brilliant poem
Something that is really good
And get some hearts a glowing
This silence makes me feel so great
And love just pours on out
It’s then I see my skill with words
And throw away my doubts

The pleasure of being alone without being lonely! The moments which I treasure a lot, my friend. A delightful poem, as usual. Regards // paul

G'day Paul. I love to have my time to myself so I get up four hours before my Lady gets out of bed. Love it when the sun rises. Thank you for your kind words, my friend...all the best, Peter

Once again Sara I thank you for your kind comments. The rhyme and flow just comes by itself without any mind, it is kind of spiritual and comes natural. Your visits to my page is always a great pleasure to me, my friend. All the best....Peter

It certainly does Nette. I don't need much in life except take a look within and find out who I really am. I appreciate your kind comments, my friend….peter

Being alone does not translate to being lonely.. Sometimes we need this silence to reflect on ourselves and rediscover the inner energy that will wheel us to greater achievements... This is so beautiful and the picture you used perfectly cements the mental picture of your awesome creativity. Happy 2019

I love silence, as you know.. love this poem my friend.. I remember when I was in Sydney, was so nice to have a coffee outside in the morning, basking in the morning sun, silence, except for all the different sounds of birds there.. beautiful..

Silence, country, two dogs, it makes me want to run outside and write something. Wait! The 27 degree weather and my asthma are stopping me. But in the spring I will do all of my writing out there in the country. Nothing better, Peter.

G'day Caren, it must be horrible to suffer with asthma. I used to suffer from this until I learned some breathing exercises that got me over it. I cured myself from some of the ills that I used to have. Thank you for your kind comments,my friend....peter
