5/14/2022 – There was a quiet

There was a quiet
Once
A place free of metal crashing
Of voices in their fell cacophony
A place of calm

I remember the grasses bending
And the trees swaying
And the bees humming

I remember the way the air smelled
Its sweetness
Its earthiness

I remember the warm sun on my skin
A pleasant heat on my eyes
That took away so much I did not need

There was a quiet
Once
I wish to find it
Guide me?
