Morning Meditation: Quiet

Rural Misissippi 2011, C.Hamrick

On a beautiful summer day
when the humidity gives us
a break, I walk the dog
through my (relatively) quiet
neighborhood, craving
the different quiet
of the deep woods, the real
soul quiet where the only noise
is the muffled flutterings
of little birds, the rustle
of leaves in the breeze,
and my solitary footsteps
on the forest floor.
