at the start of the day,

my world is so quiet,

soundless and soothing,

allowing me to focus

on the stillness inside,

slows my breath,

 so my being can


the simplicity of life,

attuned to the stillness,

 the house takes on

a different,

dimension when you have  to


on sight and smell,

everything has a way

of slowing to a halt,

and breathe, if you will,

the simplicity

of time,

before the chaos

of the hearing


drowns your soul,

deafness has


that no other

can relate,

the simplicity of stillness,

down deep


one’s soul.

Just taking one step at a time and writing about the simple pleasures that make me smile.
