QUIET!


Quietly it churns.

Grinding through old memories,

real or imaginary.

Real are discarded.

Imaginary are embellished.

Fed.

Given fangs and claws

that will tear

at its creator.

Churning.

Ever churning.

Rest and silence be damned.

I don't get a whole lot of quiet around here with all the kids and animals.

Wishing you peace and quiet!

Quiet? Yeah, we can only appreciate it when everything is falling apart. Bring it on.

You are making me jealous my dear friend. I am simply enjoying everything you write.

"Simplicity amongst quiet
I yearn for disinformation inside the masses
so I may hear the wild humming of angelic verses"

Merry Christmas my lovely friend. How special I feel to know you are a part of my life no matter the distance.

Soft love,
