WINDSTILL

There is a strange quietness about tonight

It is the quietness of the absence of wind

And in this land so close to the wild Atlantic Ocean ~ that is rather unusual

We know of the stillness before a storm

Or the quietness we experience on some rare days when not a blade of grass is stirring

Or the stillness after a thunderstorm when only the blackbird sings

and nothing moves

But tonight it is a quietness all of its own

it woke me up

    1. Oeps Tish, I thought this was an English word but it seems that I was thinking with my Flemish mind, and in fact I was not thinking at all because it was pure inspiration in the middle of the night and half awake ๐Ÿ™‚ But yes it means no wind at all and it does carry a certain stillness that is very noticeable I think. Thank you Tish.

    1. Thanks Helen that’s good so ๐Ÿ™‚ Yes we are so used to it being very windy and noisy as a result especially at night here in West Cork. We also live very exposed.
