quiet

Peaceful
I said
Quiet
he said
and shuddered

as if quiet was bad

he feels unsettled
without
engine buzz
siren call
TV murmuring
voices dopplering
past the window
as the pubs close

bee buzz
bird call
leaves murmuring

not the same at all

he hunches, lonely
even though I’m here.

  1. This virus is defining those of us who find retreat and quiet peaceful and those who wilt under lack of action. You have captured this so well. I especially love the nature sounds. Smiles.
