Need a quiet spot

Woodland – Image by KL Caley

For visually challenged writersthe image shows a shallow stony river meandering through some woodland.


I have discovered that my need to find 

A quiet place has remained constant throughout life

When I was younger, I would go out in the garden

To be by myself, alone with my daydreams and thoughts

And as I grew older, the desire for solitude remained

But was overran by the overwhelming responsibilities of life

Now when I can, I enjoy my alone time, in quietness

I savor the silence, the feeling of being secluded

When I can hear my thoughts and answer them in my heart

  1. A quiet place is so much needed to recharge our minds and souls. Life can be hectic at times so the break is well needed. Thanks for your post!

  2. The image you used reminds me of how lucky I am to have a similar creek that borders my yard.
    I enjoy the quite solitude there… Even when the neighbors children play across the street – I am safe listening to the trees, birds and squirrels 🙂

  3. Beautiful image that fits your words so perfectly. The last 2 lines resonate quite deeply…too many times we allow the clamor of this world to drown out our deepest desires that our heart is trying to communicate. 💞💞
