Silence

Hello friend,

I knew I'd meet you here. All I had to do was walk about & listen for you.

Let's sit in the sun for a while and chat. All is well here, and you?

Isn't it amazing how when we need each other, we know right where the other is?

I have a feeling you enjoy my company as much as I enjoy yours.

By the way, my name is Tracey. I'm sorry I didn't catch yours?

Welcome my friend. Very nice to meet you, Silence.

:-)

  1. 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.

  3. Lovely. I liked the ambiguity. Is s/he with a real friend ---and words are unnecessary? Or is she communicating with silence itself?

  5. 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!

  9. 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! Peace, Amy
