quietude

When thinking of the word 'quiet' what comes to mind?  My 4 year-old (who's now 6) responded with, "What about milk, Mama?  Milk is quiet."  Just like that.  Simple.  Kids always know.  It's too bad that we sometimes forget as we get older.  We have too much clutter.  It's time to find room for solitude and reflection...


peeking into
the quiet corners
of our world
taking the time
to slow down
and pay attention
to our senses and
the ordinary things that go 
unnoticed
dust on the window ledge
cake crumbs on a white saucer
scuffed boots and crooked soles
we begin to see
while we rush
through our days
