Different kinds of quiet

October 3, 2012

Sometimes quiet feels
like suffocating.
It can be parched with loneliness.
But this week my quiet feels like
the exquisite boredom of things growing.
It’s not very interesting to watch.
You’d see me sitting still,
not talking much,
dazed by the miracle of trees and light,
occasionally putting my finger into the grass
to check its pulse
like a confused but gentle stoner.
