“Creamy miles of quiet….Giant swoop of blue.” ~ Naomi Shihab Nye
I pull the car over, suddenly, a little bit recklessly
and ask you to take a photo
to capture that moment that I feel should last just a second longer
the tranquility, the stillness, the beauty
of that flash in our ordinary day.
I want to envelop it in pale pink satin and wrap it around me
gently forcing it into every pore of my skin and
pushing it deep into my core.
That twinkling of light, and silence,
and creamy miles of quiet to come.
Words on silence inspired by January prompt-a-day with writealm.com.
