WELCOMED SOLITUDE

I hear it clearly. For years now the sound of silence has become a trusted friend. My head clears when I near its fringe. Any hinge unlatched becomes attached in this peace. A place where space is abundant, and a writer can be inspired, synapses fired and reloaded, goaded into action. The attraction is most wanted, a welcomed invitation to find the inspiration I seek. As others begin to stray, here I will stay. Surrounded by the sound of silence. This trusted friend. My words never end in this place and I find my peace in my solitude.

the meadow of thought
the great expanse of silence
only peace invades

  1. Welcome back Walter! I wondered where you’d been. I think most of us agree that the sound of silence is a friend, a muse or guardian angel that gives us space for inspiration. Your haiku expresses your thoughts beautifully!

  2. A place where space is abundant – i like this very much, even in crowded places, there is space to be cultivated – nice to read you again Walter
