What I like about this is the tacit understanding that those words are not spoken they are not needed they merely record that no words are necessary when you are comfortable just being with other and enjoying life together.
Thank you, oldegg. You described my thoughts perfectly, my friend.
Nicely done - say no more!
Thank you, Altonian. I truly appreciate that!
Lovely. I liked the ambiguity. Is s/he with a real friend ---and words are unnecessary? Or is she communicating with silence itself?My response to the SILENCE prompt can be found here: http://proartz.blogspot.com/2012/11/the-summer-of-1974-short-fiction.html
CJ, I LOVED your post. I left a comment at your place. Thank you for your kind words here; I like the questions you propose. Blessings, friend!
Hello love - beautiful words. Silence, it is a gift when we are surrendered, honest and have faith.Love Gailpeace...
Hello sunshine! Silence is one of my very best friends. :-) Peace & love to you ~ me.
Interesting. At the start I felt it was a welcoming acknowledgement of silence as a friend but then, at the very end, I wondered if there was a little bit of sarcasm, a little bit of rejection. Ambiguity makes poems interesting!
Perfect! Silence is a wonderful companion and a respite from the noisy world! I loved how this was written, such a casual, comfortable tone.
Silence speaks as strong as the words here!! loved this
Thank you: J Cosmo Newberry, Josie Two Shoes & Lady in Read!! I appreciate your kindness! :-)
Loved how the narrator accepts the silence as an answer, never gets a reply that's audible... but keeps on talking anyway! Now, some will call this strangle, but as for me, I hug trees and talk to my garden on a regular basis. Charming, and my first time here, thanks to Sunday Scribblings. Thanks!

Silence is delicious. So is your photo! I love a good color splash : )
Fabulous picture to go with your thoughtful words :)
Silence is soothing when we understand and accept it. Great writing!
