 I remember well

float on quiet waters
soundless boundless sense-deprived
embrace the peace within

cricket silence
between scraping sounds
     autumn begins           (Jane Reichhold)

 the quiet deceives us

goddess waters

[ It has been quite awhile since I have posted to these pages, and I really can't say why.. Perhaps just uninspired to write for a time, but I have swayed to all the music ....]

 purest burning sun 
river cleansed by belief 
and graced with prayer
