The Sound of Silence
“Hello darkness, my old friend
I’ve come to talk with you again
Because a vision softly creeping
Left its seeds while I was sleeping
And the vision that was planted in my brain
Within the sound of silence.”
(*”The Sound of Silence”, written by Paul Simon, recorded by Paul Simon & Art Garfunkel in 1964)
Silence, quiet and stillness, seep slowly from our busy bright day into night,
as light leaves our environment and darkness covers everything we see.
Darkness, our old friend. Not to fear, but to delight in the enveloping cocoon of silence and rest; a quiet time of day.
A time for renewal of spirit, refreshing the senses and resting the muscles from the day’s work. Silence.
A chance to think, speak, a time to listen to others.
The sound of silence…..
*”The Sound of Silence” was written in the aftermath of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy.
