A Day's Retreat

A kind soft breeze washed away the heat of early evening as
we sipped ice tea and waited for the sun to sink into darkness.

Neither had spoken for minutes - a gift to the other while
we filled tired body parts with sweet purity of the moment.

Ours was a pleasant friendship not using conversation in
our communicating which pleased us in an accepted silence.

We shared and stared at the half-sun blazing its majestic
colors in a goodnight as it disappeared in a color panorama

With anticipation a few minutes of waiting reward us with
creature sounds taking stage in orchestrated twilight voices

The beauty of nature's sounds were gently disturbed as the
audience refilled tea glasses and two lives with rare fullness

F William Broome 2009

So often, words can only spoil/destroy those intimate moments,
and, Bill, you tell it so well in your accepted silence.

Reviewed by Felix Perry 6/14/2009
Very nicely done and so full of depth of feeling.

Bill, I have always loved your writing, but now, I find I'm enjoying your work even more. They are filled with so much nostalgia and so much feeling. Simply beautiful!
Reviewed by Joyce Bowling 6/14/2009
Exceptional write my friend, very caring, touching and inspiring. Enjoyed this much, for it's not always what we say that touches the other but many times we are moved through the silence....enjoyed this very much!
Blessings from Ky.
