Reena’s Exploration Challenge #112 – Pockets of Stillness

pockets of stillness


I’m walking o work

The humdrum of the morning

Invades my senses

There is no escape,

Cars, the trains, planes overhead

How do I crave some silence?

Around me is endless chatter

Friends, catching up

Acquaintances offering polite conversation

There is no time for complacency.

I turn into my office

I close the door, locking out the din

And I sit within my very own pocket of stillness.

    We do crave the solitude and silence once in a while.

    Your protagonist is extremely lucky to find ‘pockets of stillness’ in the office. That is normally the place where turbulence begins ☺

    Sometimes, my best friend and I just sit in my car saying nothing, thinking nothing and just watch the river flow by. We’ve been friends for 44 years so sometimes words are not needed…but coffee always is 🙂
