The Sound of Silence

A candle flickers
 soundlessly
 on my work table

A crochet hook
moves
in a silent, repetitious rhythm

and curtain shadows
dance on the walls
in rays of sun

The window handle
sits in a froth of  net curtains
There is stillness
and quiet contemplation.

No music, no television blaring, no one talking
Just listening to the sound of silence
and bathing in its velvety fullness
creating harmony and plenitude.

  5. Sandra, I enjoy your vision and perspective in these contemplative photos. I recently read an essay on silence which the author said is not the absence of sound but the absence of noise. Silence may be filled with soothing sounds that weave into the background and allow us to experience calm.

  6. A beautifully worded post as always Sandra, cut mats too. We have been listening to the radio more this year, turning the TV off whe there isn't anything on worth watching, which is often at the moment. xx
