Quiet acts noisy

November 6, 2010

Quiet acts noisy at times, ringing gong-like amidst the din of living. It is possible to want too much, but not when echoes peal off the walls of ravines.

The clamor fills my ears, stomps into my brain like an invited guest. I can try to keep myself still, but as I walk by the produce salesmen, I realize they watch me; they spot my crooked smile. In my head I hear the reverberations, triggered by memory, known by heart.


  1. Very well written. A great description (a perfect picture) of a situation.Simple and profound at the same time

  3. Well worth the time it took to see where you were going. Beautiful, as always.
