We were asked to think about the word Imagine in all its guises. This is the first of two.

DAY OF SILENCE (Writer’s Island, Imagine)

If a single day
could be set aside
for silence

For contemplations
No TV, no radio
no voices

Expressing ourselves only
with our faces and eyes
Opening our souls

Experiencing neighbors, friends
without the burden of words
Our eyes alone would speak

A day for books
for walks, to listen as Nature
had her say

A true Sabbath
One day set aside to remember
who we are to one another
