Shrinking Down to Silence

.

Forgive me my lost
muchness, my lost touch
with all in
-sanity. I find that I can
only listen now to stars,
the twinkling inklings
of this sage sky. I
also think these trees
have some small thing
to say, and if I dwindle
down small, dim
-inish my own skin,
I might find a quiet
slice of sigh, a place
to be
-gin again.

    They can certainly contribute in any small ways. One cannot dismiss these elements that might provide a solution however small! Rightly said De!

    Really love the word flow here. Wondered about the ‘gin’ in the last line and wondering if that can cause a person to lose his ‘muchness.’ But being able to listen to the stars is definitely a good thing! Smiles.

  10. Oh I adore the slice of a sigh.. delicious words De…

    to begin again.

    One often finds the going might be facing obstacles along the way. It is a wise thing to break them up into little pieces and begin to find some openings. It may turn out to be a big sigh that one discovers. Great thoughts De!

    Listening to the stars is a wise choice..love the sense of both diminishing and opening up to the things that really count..really quite magical!

    Quietness can make it feasible to begin anew again. It allows one .to consider various options without pressure
