shared silence

Shared silence

Those who are interested
in sharing 
and enjoying silence with others
while listening to and observing nature
are welcome to turn off
all of their electronic devices
and then come over,
stop thinking
and simply be —
in the stillness 

To find out how to get here,
send a message to:

That’s what was written
on a small sign in a small café
on the edge of town


Some came alone,
others in pairs
now and then
a few came together
to share some silence
in the stillness


Tea sang softly
as it rested in cups
and butterflies danced
while gentle people simply were
in comfortable silence
