Good writing, with a strong point and with life oozing out.

stillness

April 3, 2014

the loud lady leaves the restaurant far too soon
missing the quiet that fills her wake
people speaking with restraint
effectively communicating below 90 decibels
happy to put forth the minimal effort
to actually listen to their dining companions
instead of squinting their ears shut
their senses assaulted

unfortunately unaffected by all of this
shouting her way down the sidewalk
oblivious to a room
where words are not measured by volume
but by import
reserve
grace
