Fay Slimm





A little silence mothers more truth for those
who dare seek and embrace
the unheard,
for if not smothered stillness guides minds
to find in quiet
something of beauty waiting behind sound
to become to the listener
more than mere antidote.

To those who see value in unsung whispers
a soundless time provides
escape to peace,
composes a peerless calmness aiding days
of halcyon balm
to reach life's mysterious core of healing
for only at rest can stillness
stifle stress of noise wholly.

    Great poem! Fay
    In the season that I am in my life
    I cherish quiet moments when I can get them, because
    most of my time is around my lovely extroverted boys.😉

    I was so inspired by this that in writing a comment i actually wrote my next poem to be posted here.
    I believe i know the healing of quiet which is not the same thing as silence. Quiet can bring peace, relaxation, harmony and wellbeing, repairing our soul.
