Silence in between

With the muddy earth slowing me down
Softening with the silence amongst the trees
I am listening again
Each breath feeding me deeply
There is nowhere to go
Just the here and now is enough right now
And slowly the presence is making itself felt
The joy and pleasure in the body spreading
Like melting chocolate and honey
Its time to rest now
Soon the spring will be here again
And until then each day a gift of darkness and silence
Closing the curtains early each day
Enjoying the nest of home
And the silence in between
