Love calls, everywhere and always. We're sky bound- are you coming? - Rumi


it's quiet here
under the trees
the sunset lighting the horizon on fire
it's cold
and gradually getting colder
but calm
peaceful
quiet.
the remains of a place
that used to be beautiful
but is magnificent
in its destruction
i've been here for years,
time and time again
but this time, it's different
this time, it's quiet
a silence more potent, more powerful
than the most meaningful sound
this is real
when nothing else is
although i must go
(and soon)
i cling to this moment.
the end.
the beginning.
the quiet.


The author's comments:
I wrote this about an actual place. This is the view of my home at sunset from my swing set in the middle of Winter. So yes, it definitely has a literal meaning. However, as I'm sure you all know, the literal meaning only goes so far. I'm leaving it up to everyone else to figure out what I mean by this, but trust me when I say- there's more than meets the eye.
