Quiet Space - Poem by Helen Gaudin
Outside the busy world clatters, chatters and rattles on
Sounds of vehicles rushing by
The constant electronic hum, just below hearing, felt in the bone
The minutiae of other lives seeping into you through waves of sound
Day in, day out, constant sound, always there always present, filling mind and body to the brim.
Breathing consciously you create the pause between the layers of sound
Quiet space, inside your head, expanding out
Your eye rests gently on a peaceful scene;
Your hand curves over the warm, soft body of a companion;
Drifting softly the scent enters you soul, memories expand;
On your tongue, the taste of family, of love, of happiness in the bite taken;
Inside, the quiet world, expands, flexes and absorbs and fills your soul to the brim
You move beyond the world’s noise
You leave behind those other’s lives
Breathe, space, quiet, no sound, always there within your reach, always present filling mind and body
Slip gently into your quiet space, your regenerating place.
