Delicious silence


you are as delicious as

melting ice cream

on a steamy hot beach day.


Just to sit and listen

to all there is,

and have the space

to contemplate

what might be,

is as soft and as

delectable as

melting fine chocolate.


Silence is the luxury

not bought in this age,

in this time  of clatter,

distraction, noise and entertainment.


Silence just sits with you

like a loyal friend

who shares an ice-cream,

some chocolate or a cake

in a delicious moment

of simply being still.
