Open the blinds

Breathtaking golden silence, the hills and sky are on fire

Where is the quiet when it is needed

Peace, restfulness. Within and without

Not a place without noise, just the floating sensation of tranquility, as precious as any metal

I can hear your heartbeat, head on your chest

Perfect simple contentment

The staggering cerise canvas before us, reminding that the way is humble, away from human traffic

Crawl back beneath the covers and scrawl your name across my chest
