Six Word Friday: Silence

Here are some thoughts on silence:


I love the silence that exists

early in the morning before dawn

and everyone else awakens the day.

(Though I hate early morning rising.)


I hate the silence when I

go outside that tells me that

the dog is no longer there.


I love the little noises that

tell me that someone is home.

Because when they are gone away

the silence is sometimes quite deafening.


Of course, as the joke goes:

Silence is golden. Duct tape is silver.

    I often find the silence of solitude quite deafening. (Er, not that I often encounter solitude. But when I do! On those rare occasions!)

    omg I’d forgotten the saying about “Silence is golden, duct tape is silver”! Too funny
    It’s amazing how silence is different contexts can mean different things. When we want it most, it’s often fleeting and when we don’t want to be alone, the silence is deafening.
