NOTE:  2020 09 13  11H11 EST  A Deepening Quietness - 

A Deepening Quietness


It began a few months ago,

and gradually, it became

more and more prevailant.

Now its depth is resounding...


You might have noticed it too.

With isolation came quietness,

from those around us, and online.

Isolation reacted to with more


Isolation.  This one: self-isolation. 

And it's getting worse as these

months progress in such uncertain

times.  Everyone is clearly weary.


Maybe we should try to not

impose more isolation on ourselves,

and keep talking to one another?

Alone in our thoughts for too long,


well, you don't need me to tell you

it isn't good for anyone's morale,

let alone anyone's psyche.  This

quietness does no one any favors.


What do you think? 

You see and feel it too, right?

Feels like we could be doing

something to diminish this void 


from settling further...

As a lowly "essential" retail worker, I haven't dealt with isolation (beyond that I've always imposed upon myself). I have noticed that some customers seem desperately chatty when they come to me in search of hand sanitizer and antiseptic wipes.

Isolation and weary are the words that say it all. Beautifully expressed.

Fear of what is going on
Far and near
Yet like wars of the past
There is fatalistic humor
