Sometimes I have nothing to offer
But the kind of silence you find
In a grove of pines
With needle blanket-decades thick.
Silence is something to savor, especially this time of year.
Thanks NAPR. Sometimes I have an overwhelming urge to say little…..but I still want to write. How conflicting is THAT!!
I know what you mean all too well!
Often silence is the best gift of all. Thank you for the reminder, Colleen.
You’re welcome Russ. 🙂
how lovely this is.
This is just the right thing to read tonight, as I trudge on home and get under a blanket. I like the idea of silence, the pine scent wafting across my nostrils. Smiles
I hope you’re feeling well! “Trudge” makes it sound like maybe you don’t feel too well. Smiles returned. 🙂
I am well, Colleen. Just some days seem longer than others. I didn’t mean to use ‘trudge’ but it certainly sounds better than ‘stomp!’ ha ha!
Thanks for caring and hoping I am feeling well, Colleen. So sweet….
🙂 Well this is good news then. Trudge is better than stomp, stomp sounds….angry! 😉
It’s important to know when to be quiet, to be still. ❤
Sometimes that is what’s needed the most. And, I really like your drawing, which looks like it took a long time to do. 🙂
Thank you Paulette. It makes me feel good, for some reason. I’ve always loved the idea of a little cabin hidden in the pines. Maybe that’s why. 🙂
Sometimes the best thing you can offer.
I’d needle you about this one, but it’s just too pretty of a picture, Colleen. And then you’d pine at me about my bad puns. 😮
HA!!!!! Well done Mark!!!! 🙂
And so many reminiscence of Christmas. Silence is perfect just then. In a positive peaceful way 🙂
Maybe that is part of what I’m feeling right now? An over whelming need for silence. It could be seasonal…. peaceful. Thank you.
Wow. I’m speechless how you captured the perfect moment of peace.
Thank you. I think sometimes those moments capture us…and we want to go back.
That sounds so inviting right now. And the smell of pine is wonderful too.
🙂 I would love a walk in the place I am imagining from this post. 🙂
